Press Release GAO Launches Web Site Improvements To Enhance Visibility, Impact

WASHINGTON (August 20, 2007) -- The Government Accountability Office (GAO) today unveiled its newly redesigned Web site, www.gao.gov. The updated site makes the agency’s work easier to find, and it better explains what GAO is and what it does. New features on the homepage include a prominent dynamic display of GAO’s latest products, a streamlined “In the Spotlight” section, and a new “Key References” section with links for site visitors.

“Interest in GAO and our work continues to grow,” said Comptroller General David M. Walker. “We want to meet the needs of our various audiences with the most informative and helpful Web site we can offer. These new features go a long way toward meeting that goal.”

The site is now easier to navigate, so visitors have better options to help them find what they are looking for. The site’s new design elements were based on visitor comments, and the enhancements were tested by actual users and further refined based on feedback.

GAO anticipates further improvements to the site based on comments from its users and evolving technology tools. Furthermore, GAO products, including reports and testimonies, will continue to be posted daily, usually by early afternoon of the day they are released.
