2014 Web Standards Self-Assessments Report
As part of the Government's ICT-enabled transformation of public services, we’re focused on helping agencies make web services easier for the public to use. Last year we asked agencies to assess their progress towards achieving the Web Accessibility and Usability Standards for the design, development and content of Government websites. The results of those self-assessments have been reviewed, and the final 2014 Web Standards Self-Assessments Report, which also outlines plans for continual improvement, is now available.
Each agency that submitted self-assessment results has been provided a copy of the review of their results. The reviews were conducted by the Web Standards Working Group (WSWG) involving specialists from disability communities and government agencies. They are intended to help agencies’ ongoing efforts to understand and implement the Web Standards.
We will be holding two workshops for participating agencies where we can talk about what the self-assessments reveal. Bring any questions you have about your agency's self-assessment results or their evaluation.
The workshops are an opportunity to identify and discuss parts of the Web Standards that need clarification, or aspects of agency websites that might warrant additional consideration. If you have any concerns about how your results were evaluated, please come along and raise them at one of the workshops. We want to work with agencies to make things better for people accessing your online information and services.
