The Web Services Office is responsible for the design, development, implementation, maintenance and operations of the College's website and web-based information delivery systems.
- The ultimate responsibility for TMCC's website(s) and online presence rests with TMCC's Webmaster.
- Using a web Content Management System (CMS), responsibility for day-to‐day content edits and revisions for many of our administrative pages lies with an approved web content contributor. In cases where one does not exist, Web Services is responsible.

- Web Services is responsible for CMS training and ensuring compliance with approved/established web standards.

Each College department, division, program or club that has a web presence is expected to designate a single web content provider to oversee their website and liaise with Web Services. The web content provider is responsible for adding, editing and reviewing content for the public website.
To confirm and verify specific writing standards and styles are met, all submitted content is reviewed by Web Services prior to going live.

- Writing style
- Legal requirements, including copyright permissions
- Visual content
- College web usability and accessibility standards
- Any other essential content requirements
- Web Services has produced a series of informative web pages designed to assist web content providers in meeting these guidelines. Web Services also offers ongoing training and support.
- Web Services will work closely with departments to help them meet TMCC's web standards and guidelines. In the event that, despite this, serious breaches occur, Web Services may make corrections without prior consultation, although notification of changes will be sent.
- Attendance in training courses provided by Web Services is required to access the CMS and become a departmental web content provider.
- Web publishers are requested to notify Web Services when maintainers/users of the CMS no longer need access to edit pages.
- Any complaints received concerning information published on any College web server should be forwarded to Web Services.
- Registered CMS users are not permitted to share their login details with non-registered users.
