Federal agencies must conduct inventories of hundreds of their Web domains in the coming weeks using surveys estimated to take seven hours to 56 hours per agency, according to new guidance from Federal CIO Steven VanRoekel.

The inventories are part of a White House plan announced in June to eliminate redundant and outdated federal websites and Web domains and improve efficiency and customer service. Currently, there are 1,710 federal Web domains and more than 24,000 federal websites.
