|Bulletin Name:||E-mail Distribution of Bulletins|
|Purpose:||To have agencies establish an e-mail address, with automatic forwarding, for distribution of "A" and "G" Bulletins, as well as bulletins from other control agencies.|
In order for OSC to eliminate faxing Accounting (A) and Procurement and Disbursement Guidelines (G) Bulletins, each agency should establish an e-mail address as follows by 3/31/03.
Upon receiving your new address, OSC will begin e-mailing links to bulletins as they are issued and will discontinue faxing them.
|Benefits:||This approach enables agencies to get information to those who need it quickly without the maintenance of large central directories. It has been tested with several agencies having different e-mail software including Outlook Express, Lotus Notes, and Groupwise, and participants are pleased with the results.
DOB and OGS have expressed interest in using this mailbox as well, and will notify you in future publications of their unique character strings to be used in establishing rules. OSC will share the directory of "bulletin" addresses with these and other agencies.
