The Government Information Center works closely with executive, technical and communication staff within state agencies to help them create well-designed, up-to-date and useful websites that present the information that Delawareans need. GIC staff work to stay current with the latest in web design, accessibility, content strategy, and information architecture to better equip government agencies to serve their users and the public.
Through projects like continued updates to the delaware.gov state portal and the statewide Common Look and Feel (CLF) initiative, GIC staff work to help state agency web pages on the cutting edge of web design.
The GIC also provides the services of a small staff of dedicated web designers to help agencies rethink, redesign, and maintain their websites. Recent projects include the award-winning Open Data Portal, and the national award-winning Business First Steps website.
Government information should be available to all residents regardless of ability or disability. Websites should be designed to provide equal access to information and functionality. The GIC assists agencies in designing their sites for accessibility. We try to meet and exceed the WAVE Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool standard for all websites we launch. Webmasters can take steps today to ensure that accessibility is maintained.
GIC offers specialized training for state agencies. We can tailor training for your office on maintaining state websites, WordPress, Social Media, web content, and best practices. Please contact us to get started.
