Moderation Of .Govt.NZ Domain Moves To E-Govt Unit

23 November 2000

News Release


The Government Information System Managers Forum (GOVIS) has transferred its responsibilities in respect of moderation for central government agencies to the SSC E-Government unit.

For some years GOVIS has voluntarily performed the valuable function of moderating this domain on behalf of the community of central government agencies.

"The formation of the E-Government Unit in the State Services Commission now creates a natural home for this role in a central government agency," said Mike Pearson, Convenor of GOVIS.

"We are sure that the E-Government Unit will moderate names in such a way as to protect public confidence in the integrity of the domain, as GOVIS has always done."

"To assist them, GOVIS has recently developed a policy document, 'Moderation of central Government domain names in the domain', which has been passed to the E-Government Unit."

The moderation of Local Government domain name space remains unaffected by the change.

For further information please contact Mike Pearson, GOVIS Convenor 04 460-4632 (day) GOVIS, 23 November 2000
