State Department Ranked No. 2 in e-Government Study

State.gov ranked second behind the White House out of a total of 61 federal agencies

Posted: September 16, 2005

A team of researchers at Brown University’s Taubman Center for Public Policy recently concluded their analysis of 1,620 state and federal websites. In their "Sixth Annual State and Federal e-Government Study," state.gov ranked second behind the White House out of a total of 61 federal agencies. Researchers evaluated the websites for quality issues affecting user experience and a range of factors from audio-video features to disability access, privacy policy, etc.

The state.gov website was noted for offering users "a wide range of options and services in a refreshingly organized format that is easy to navigate. A tool bar at the top of the page follows users throughout the site and gives the option of viewing an index of services, recent news releases, along with a slew of other options."
