State rolls out redesigned website

Secretary of Technology Jim Duffey announced on Monday the launch of the revamped, Virginia’s official state government website. The new site includes an updated design focusing on new information delivery and web interface tools. The functional improvements and content additions keep pace with changing social and Web browsing habits and the evolving role of citizen interaction with government.

The new site includes:

  • A larger presence of social media products
  • A more robust search capability and improved listing and search capability for state online services
  • An enhanced mapping capability, including the capability to detect a user’s physical location and automatically display the corresponding area on the base map – a technology known as GeoIP
  • A new mobile application

The state web portal is produced and managed for the Commonwealth through a contractual relationship established between the Virginia Information Technologies Agency and Virginia Interactive LLC, a subsidiary of NIC.
