I think you are asking for a template of an "Acceptable Usage Policy" (AUP)? A document that defines what the "acceptable usage" of corporate resources (computers, networks, printers, email, etceteras)?  And then I think you said you want a governmental version?

so, here is a very brief definition of what an AUP is:

here is the one that the United States Department of the Interior uses to define acceptable usage of the Internet:

and this one defines the AUP for phones and such:

I hope this helps somewhat

Just a note:  I was looking at some of the links the others provided, and I tried the State of Virginia AUP for the Internet.  Avoid that one.  IMHO, it's poorly written (If I had turned in work like that my boss would have canned my butt :)).  I'm referring to: http://www.dhrm.state.va.us/hrpolicy/policy/pol1_75.pdf
