In a move aimed at providing a consistent and simple mechanism for email addresses, the Federal Government has introduced new guidelines for agencies.

The Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) within the Department of Finance and Deregulation, on behalf of the Business Process Transformation Committee, has developed the Australian Government Email Address Naming Standards. The standards provide a common approach to email addressing, and are expected to be implemented by all agencies.

The new email standards:

  • present a consistent image of government accessibility
  • are intuitive to use
  • provide a simple way to find or determine email addresses of Australian Government employees

The three standards are as follows:

  • Published personal email addresses
  • Managing Duplicates
  • Functional Addresses
