CIA.gov Captures Standard of Excellence WebAward
September 18, 2007
The CIA received a Standard of Excellence WebAward today from the Web Marketing Association (WMA). The CIA captured the Standard of Excellence award in the government category.
The WebAwards, now in its 11th year, is the premier annual Web site award competition that names the best Web sites in 96 industry categories, while setting the standard of excellence for all Web site development.
Web sites were judged on design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copywriting, and ease of use. Those that win the Standard of Excellence WebAward score above the average of their industry.
The WebAward comes on the heels of the redesigned CIA.gov Web site, which launched in May 2007. The redesigned site included a new look and feel, a variety of interactive features – including videos and virtual tours – and revamped, updated and improved content.
“Our Web site serves as a great resource for visitors and is part of the CIA’s social contract to share as much information as we can with the American people,” said Mark Mansfield, CIA Director of Public Affairs. “We are honored to receive this award and to be recognized for the hard work that went into our recent redesign.”
