SALT LAKE CITY -- May 2, 2013

Recognized with over 100 awards, the official website for the State of Utah
(http://Utah.gov), shows off a new homepage boasting major enhancements. Utah
citizens have access to hundreds of online services that processed over 31
million transactions last year, estimating millions of dollars in savings to
the state.

“With more Internet users per capita, Utah is proud of our eGovernment success
that results in a more efficient and technologically advanced way to interact
with government,” said Utah Governor Gary Herbert. “Economic development
continues to be a top priority and Utah.gov is smart for citizens and
businesses.”

Users can use zooming user interface to get more information about current
news, their legislative representatives, and jobs in their area. In the last
12 months, Utah.gov services provided over 11 million online job referrals to
Utah citizens. In addition, citizens can connect via, connect.Utah.gov, to
over 1,700 official Utah government social media accounts.

“We are adding more services monthly to make government more accessible for
citizens. Interacting with government using Utah.gov is not only more
efficient and convenient for citizens, it provides greater transparency and
use of state information,” said Mark VanOrden, Utah State Chief Information
Officer.
