The California State Board of Equalization (BOE) received two statewide awards from the California Association of Public Information Officials (CAPIO) for its newly redesigned website and informative use tax video series.
CAPIO, an organization of public communication professionals, honored the BOE with a first place Award of Excellence for its reengineered website, www.boe.ca.gov, and an Award of Distinction for its use tax video series.
ÒThese honors spotlight the hard work of our BOE staff in developing customer-focused tools designed to make it easier for businesses to partner with the BOE and to increase voluntary compliance,Ó said Executive Director Cynthia Bridges.
The BOEÕs new website, developed by BOE employees and unveiled in August, is customer-friendly and task-oriented. The website was built with California tax and fee payers in mind, and incorporated many of their suggestions. The CAPIO judges said they were wowed by the transformation and stressed that, ÒThe site was a refreshing approach to government website design and a huge improvement!Ó
