Website Design and Development
Any website design and development projects should be routed to Strategic Communications prior to production of the final project. When contracting with an external vendor, units should route the “Scope of Services” and “Purchase Requisition” to University Relations before work has been initiated by a vendor.
All website designs should be routed to Strategic Communications for approval prior to launching a new website, this includes website design done by any LSU employee, additional compensation employee or external vendor. A PDF mock-up or a URL of the beta site should be sent to email@example.com with sufficient time remaining in the project timeline to accommodate any changes that this division may request.
