While visiting many government Web sites since working on GovFresh, I occasionally see a vendor’s corporate logo. I can understand usage when embedding widgets, especially free ones, or incorporating social media icons to communicate to the public how they can connect with them. What’s not clear to me is the usage related to taxpayer-funded vendor services.
Are there other examples of vendor logos on government sites? Are there regulations around this? Is this appropriate? If so, in what circumstances?
