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 firstname.lastname@example.org
