NACo

Loudoun County has been recognized with 10 Achievement Awards from the National Association of Counties (NACo). The awards honor innovative, effective county government programs. One of Loudoun’s award-winning programs included its initiative to improve digital government services through user-focused design and governance. The need to provide modern digital services to the community was a driving force in the redesign and reimagining of the Loudoun County website, loudoun.gov. One major innovation was the development and implementation of a new web governance structure and policy designed to ensure the continued effectiveness of the site beyond its initial launch period. The program, led by Public Affairs and Communications, focuses on putting website users first and giving them what they want and need from their digital government services.
