A New Approach to a Government Agency Website

The Washington State Auditor’s Office (SAO) wanted to make it easier for Washingtonians to track their tax dollars at work, a challenge that required a new approach to government websites. With interactive maps, downloadable audit reports and user-customizable manuals, Gard designed a new site for SAO to serve multiple audiences, including the general public, government accountants, legislators, journalists and financial analysts.
