Crownsville, MD - The State of Maryland has been awarded second place out of all 50 states for the Overall State Government Experience Award presented by The Center for Digital Government. The award recognizes states that have used their websites, applications, and other channels to provide an exemplary overall government experience for its citizens.
Over the past several years, Maryland has made strides toward delivering a modern user experience. The Hogan administration continues to build on previous successes like its award winning Maryland.gov website, with new initiatives that make it faster, easier, and more convenient for Marylanders to receive the government services, information, and timely feedback they require. Projects like Maryland’s OneStop Licensing Portal and the MDThink Platform are stellar examples of this forward momentum and fulfilling Maryland’s commitment to create user experiences similar to or better than those commonly available in the private marketplace.
“Maryland is honored to be recognized for our increasingly modern website and other innovative channels in which our citizens interact with Maryland state government and its agencies,” said Secretary Michael G. Leahy. “This award is a testament to the Hogan administration’s continued commitment to providing greater access to government services for our citizens.”
