Partnership websites are created when EERE partners with any outside organization—another office in DOE, another federal agency, or even a non-federal organization—in order to create a shared website. These sites are unique, because they're not always branded to EERE and they're not always hosted in its template. Our new page on partnership websites explains the options that are available.
If you're designing a partnership website, be sure to talk to the Web Governance Team before you begin. And if you're already in the process of developing one, remember that we have a QA Checklist for partnership websites that covers all of the top-level federal requirements that all websites made with federal funds have to meet.
As always, if you have any questions you can ask here in the blog comments or you can send an email to the Communication Standards webmaster. We're always glad to answer your questions!
