I’m proud to announce the launch of the completely rebuilt and redesigned online home of the Department of the Treasury. We’ve worked hard to make it easier for citizens like you to find the information you need while upgrading the technology that powers the site so that we can offer more while saving taxpayers money.
Our goal wasn’t just to make the site look better; we wanted to make improvements that citizens like you were looking for at Treasury.gov. We used feedback from site visitors, usability tests, focus groups, and website traffic logs to figure out how we could better serve our site users. For example, site visitors said we had a wealth of raw data but that it was unintelligible to citizens looking for answers, so we created data visualizations. We heard that we often had out-of-date material accumulating on the site so we freshened up and streamlined our content. And we wanted to make the site more cost-efficient, so we moved our hosting structure to the “cloud,” where we will be able to save taxpayer money.
Here are just a few of the many improvements you can see on the new Treasury.gov today.
And for those of you interested in some of the improvements we made under the hood, here are some additional facts about the new site.
So, take a look around and let us know what you think. Thanks for visiting Treasury.gov and please visit again soon.
