In this era of WA state government there was no official examples of what a website that complied with the Web Governance Framework (state government imposed guidelines) and WCAG 2.0 might look like. As public servants we weren't overly impressed. 😐


Being resourceful lads we kicked off our own mini-revolution by releasing a series of modern, modular website templates. The intent being an agency struggling with resources could use them to quickly launch a compliant site or perhaps use them for rapid prototyping.

This project was a national finalist in the 2015 Australian Web Awards in the Innovation category and while in 2018 the project isn't as technically relevant, the intention is still valid.

The SCSA is a good example of a site using Ready Steady Gov! in the wild.
