Digital Engagement team
Our Digital Engagement specialist team provides guidance, tips, and strategic advice across New Zealand government on how to effectively use the online channel. The scope of our work is to lead, share and encourage best practice on emerging technologies and information to deliver quality online services that are tailored to the public. Examples include:
- online public engagement that is informed by our GovLoop, and Australia’s Victorian eGovernment Resource Centre
- iterative development and user-centred design of the redeveloped newzealand.govt.nz to enable the public to easily find the information they need without needing to understand the structure of government
- the open data programme to encourage agencies to make data openly available for reuse through data.govt.nz
- delivering standards and driving integrity in managing the government domain (security, privacy, accessibility, usability) to build public trust in online government services and information.
We are a small team and acknowledge how important it is to work with the local and international expertise that surrounds us. This is why we invite guest blog posts and interaction to share that knowledge with our wider audience who is asking for advice on how to make our online services and information easier for our public to interact with government.
Keep in touch with what’s happening via this Web Toolkit. We look forward to your further input and feedback.
