September 1, 2016 - The Center for Digital Government announces the winners of the 2016 Best of the Web (BOW) and Digital Government Achievement Awards (DGAA).
Now in its 20th anniversary year, the annual Best of the Web (BOW) awards recognize city, county and state governments for their work to engage citizens online while also providing them with cutting-edge Web services.
The Digital Government Achievement Awards (DGAA) highlight outstanding agency and department websites and applications. Awards were presented in seven categories this year.
“Government websites have changed a lot over the past 20 years and so have citizen expectations,” said Todd Sander, executive director of the Center for Digital Government. “This year’s winners are well positioned to take up the challenge of a new era and lead the impending transformation toward more integrated, anticipatory and personalized electronic services.”
