repeatedly for providing Texans with a positive, successful user

experience when they access government services anytime, anywhere.

The true value of the Texas.gov experience extends beyond the first few

pages of our website. Every day, more than 68,000 users visit Texas.gov

to complete a government transaction. Featuring responsive design, 100

percent accessibility, and plain language, Texas.gov delivers online

services that offer an impeccable user experience on any device. These

online applications have garnered several awards:

We know constituents value the convenience of Texas.gov, and the State

of Texas works more efficiently when Texans go online. As such,

Texas.gov is the only state portal that executes an annual, statewide

marketing campaign to promote the website and drive adoption of online

services. The 2011 Texas.gov marketing campaign received three awards:

“As CIO for the State of Texas, and Executive Director of the Texas

Department of Information Resources (DIR), I am extremely proud of the

DIR and Texas.gov team and their accomplishments,” said Karen Robinson.

“The positive feedback we receive from citizens confirms what these

eGovernment awards have recognized – Texas.gov makes it easy for Texans

to transact and connect with their government.”
