Guidelines For Central Government Websites

News Release

Guidelines For Central Government Websites Developed

The Government Information System Managers Forum (GOVIS) has taken the initiative in developing a draft document, "Guidelines for the use, management and design of New Zealand Public sector websites".

"The purpose of the Guidelines is to promote debate on good practices for public sector websites, through the use of good management and good design," said Mike Pearson, GOVIS convenor.

"They are relevant to all organisations that use the Internet to publish information and provide services to a wide range of citizens and businesses. "

"Sites that comply with the guidelines will be rich in authoritative content, well designed, linked to other sites with relevant government information and accessible by a very wide audience."

The document is available at http://www.govis.org.nz/information/nz_website_standards.doc

The guidelines have been passed to the E-Government Unit at the State Services Commission. Both users and site providers may make requests for additions and amendments to the guidelines, to e-government@ssc.govt.nz

For further information please contact Mike Pearson, GOVIS Convenor 04 460-4632 (day) mailto:convenor@govis.org.nz GOVIS, http://www.govis.org.nz
