Do you work in web related fields for the New South Wales Government, or contract to the NSW Government? If so, you are probably aware of the NSW Government Website Style Directive. The Directive aims to standardise key elements across all NSW Government web sites to create consistent and user-friendly sites that assist the public to access and search for NSW Government information. All NSW Government websites accessible by the public and operated by any entity subject to the control of, or direction from, a Minister are expected to achieve compliance with the Style Directive by 30 June 2007. Exemptions will be approved in limited circumstances and on a case by case basis.
But what does it mean to you? Do you have any burning quiestions you’d like answered? WIPA is presenting a forum on this topic next Tuesday in Sydney – and you’re invited.
Dana Anspal (Government Chief Information Office) – "An outline of the Style Directives"
Craig Moroney (NSW Food Authority) – "Building a new site using the Style Directive"
