A few months ago, we asked users of EERE's content management system (CMS), as well as the EERE staff who manage the sites, to provide feedback on their experiences with the CMS. We wanted to gather information on issues such as overall satisfaction with the CMS, amount of time spent editing your sites, service provided by the EES staff, and the value of certain CMS features.

The RedDot Content Management System does not render accessibility fixes for these tables correctly, so data tables that are coded in RedDot should also include an accessibility disclaimer with a link to the Webmaster of your site. See our page on data tables for more information. [More]
