Keeping your site current and of high quality is an important public service. It is a requirement of the EERE Web site policy that each Web site file a maintenance plan before going live. By submitting a plan, the Web site manager makes a commitment to ensuring the quality of their program's Web site content.

A maintenance plan will help you schedule important content-related and technical tasks that should be attended to on a regular basis. Regular maintenance will help ensure that your site is up to date and that maintenance tasks are less daunting. Use the template on the maintenance plans page to get ideas for tasks that might be important in the maintenance of your own site.
