USA.gov & GobiernoUSA.gov Embrace Responsive Design

The public now has easy access to the same government information they trust in English and Spanish anytime,

anywhere and on any device. 

 The U.S. General Services Administration responded to an increasingly mobile customer base by launching a new, responsive design for USA.gov and GobiernoUSA.gov.

The adjustable layouts work with all platforms (smart phones, tablets, computers) and resolutions to optimize the customer experience, presenting the same high-quality content to fit smaller devices.  “The public has key, trusted government information at their fingertips wherever they are and whenever they want it,” said Bev Godwin, Director of the Federal Citizen Information Center in the Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies.  “This new structure now serves all customers regardless of platform or device of choice, including the growing Hispanic mobile population,” Godwin added.

This responsive design is part of the federal government’s ongoing effort to make information more accessible to all Americans.  It also represents a significant cost savings to the government since the content is developed and maintained once and optimally displayed in all devices.

The new responsive design also adheres to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which ensures access to government information for people with disabilities.

GSA’s Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies provides helpful government information and services  to the public through websites, social media, phone, email, web chat, print and digital publications under the brands USA.gov, GobiernoUSA.gov, Kids.gov, and 1-800-FED-INFO. GSA facilitates more than 540 million instances of public engagement each year.
