NEW YORK-- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, has launched a refreshed public website on a new, cloud-based system. The system, which is part of a Corps-wide website overhaul, is designed to improve communication with stakeholders by increasing transparency and delivering fast, accessible, relevant information to the public.
The system also provides New York District with a consistent website look and feel that streamlines content management making it easier to keep Web pages current, and delivers a richer end-user experience that makes use of audio, video and other Web elements. This system will also provide disability access by compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
Migration is not expected to have any adverse impact on posting fact sheets, public notices or other public information; however, it may result in changed Web addresses, which means that individual user bookmarks may no longer function. If you’re having trouble finding a page or section on the new website, please email public affairs.
The Corps is using the American Forces Public Information Management System, a content management system run by the Defense Media Activity, which manages the website platforms for the DoD, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps. AFPIMS is scalable to thousands of users and millions of content items, streamlines content management and offers increased security and fast delivery of content to the end-user.
