WisDOT SharePoint Service Support - Usage Policies

WisDOT SharePoint Site Usage Policies

Below are the policies for SharePoint site usage:

  • Site Collections
  • In order to effectively administer the WisDOT SharePoint Online environment, a minimum number of site collections was initially created.

  • Organizational Site Collection

  • Archive Site Collection

  • Functional Navigation Site Collection

  • Practice Site Collection

  • Development Site Collection

  • Team and Project Collaboration Sites
  • The WisDOT SharePoint environment is structured functionally and organizationally. All sites are accessible as READ ONLY to all WisDOT employees unless deemed otherwise by divisional directors.

  • Team Collaboration sites for each WisDOT division, bureau, section, and unit

  • Project Collaboration sites for each WisDOT division

  • Each division, bureau, section, and unit is able to create collaboration sub-sites for their respective needs

  • Internal (Restricted) sites and sub-sites (versus WisDOT-wide public) need to include a designation marking that site as internal only

  • Business Partner (external) access to WisDOT sites is controlled by the respective Site Owner

  • Site Policy
  • Because the WisDOT SharePoint tenant will be hosted by Microsoft Online Services, site policies established by Microsoft will be enforced.

You should review the site usage policy section within the WisDOT SharePoint Governance Plan document.
