The Treasury Department launched a new website Monday that aims to increase communication with the public and includes the agency's first ever blog.
"The new Treasury.gov website is a major step forward in our efforts to improve the way citizens access the wealth of data and information Treasury produces on a day-to-day basis," said Dan Tangherlini, chief performance and chief financial officer of the agency, in a news release. "For the first time, [the site] will use advanced technologies like cloud computing, an official blog, and data visualizations to better communicate and connect with citizens."
The new site is hosted in a public cloud, uses a content management system and includes the agency's first ever blog.
The agency also is seeking feedback about the new site through an online portal.
