            • COLLAPSE

              Visual Design

              Creating a user experience that is memorable and interesting with clean and creative presentation of relevant information for lasting positive impressions of the brand.

            • COLLAPSE

              Site Design

              Reliable and sustainable design layouts built for quick load time, browser compatibility, dynamic content, accessibility, usability with clean visual appeal and optimization for searching.

            • COLLAPSE

              Leadership

              Every project will have a do-or-die moment. It is up to the person who has the commitment and the authority to choose “do” in many cases. Having that leader on the side of the project can make it or break it.

            • COLLAPSE

              Governance

              Defining clear operational authority, treating agencies as customers, and creating public-private partnerships.

            • COLLAPSE

              Funding Model/Budget

              Defining how the site will be sustained is a huge consideration. Whether it is self-funded through transaction fees, agency funded or a combination thereof is something that must be discussed.

            • COLLAPSE

              Relevancy/Usability

              By using meaningful headings, breaking up the text into short and straightforward sections, and using lists and other visuals to help convey a message, users can better navigate the site to find what they are looking for and complete key tasks quickly and easily.

            • COLLAPSE

              Intergovernmental Collaboration/Benchmarking

              Learning from the successes and failures of other jurisdictions by building relationships with them, speaking to project leaders, and gathering insight from the past and present trends through the use of third party site evaluations and competitions.

            • COLLAPSE

              Procurement

              Assuring that each government agency is getting the best pricing, but usually more important the assurance that improprieties will not happen.

            • COLLAPSE

              Security/Privacy

              Protection of sensitive information and regulatory compliance such as HIPPA and FOIA

            • COLLAPSE

              Content Management

              Removing outdated materials and content, identifying and fixing broken links, and reviewing and maintaining the website content.

            • COLLAPSE

              Accessibility

              Complying with accessibility guidelines for users with disabilities and inviting those with disabilities to help test the site.

            • COLLAPSE

              Browser Compatibility

              Design and test for multiple browsers, operating systems, and versions including backwards compatibility for the audience.

            • COLLAPSE

              Hardware/Software Considerations

              Having the necessary servers and bandwidth is just the beginning. Making sure that the demands on the users’ workstation is minimal, that the software used to support the site is free to users (PDF and JavaScript readers) and making those plugins easily accessible to the vast majority of your public are also critical.
