For the last eight years, Texas dot gov – the state’s official website and digital government program – has garnered national recognition for digital government excellence. With 16 more awards in 2017, Texas.gov has received nearly 100 awards.

Distinctions of note include awards for website and online services’ usability and plain language, comprehensive security and customer service excellence, and well-crafted, effective advertising, marketing, and social media initiatives.

The Texas Veterans Portal, a website designed and hosted by Texas dot gov, was the recipient of numerous accolades including “Best of Texas Award for Best IT Collaboration Among Organizations,” National Association of State Chief Information Officers “State IT Recognition Award Finalist for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Information Technology,” and Texas Association of State Systems for Computing and Communications “Project Excellence Award for Collaboration.”

Marketing and advertising campaign initiatives that focus on encouraging Texans to complete their government transactions online were recognized with an AVA Digital Platinum Award, Internet Advertising Competition Award, Communicator Award of Excellence, Hermes Gold Award, Marcom Gold Award, and Web Marketing Association Standard of Excellence among others.

“Year after year, Texas.gov remains a top platform for digital government,” said Stacey Napier, executive director of the Texas Department of Information Resources, which oversees Texas.gov. “These awards recognize something many already know – when it comes to digital government, Texas does it best.”

Since its launch in 2000, Texas dot gov has securely processed more than 288 million financial transactions and has collected more than $33 billion on behalf of participating entities.
