About the Web Audit
The ALGIM Web Audit is undertaken to provide a stock-take and trends of how councils are tracking to comply with web standards, enhance accessibility, increase their digital services, engagement and website presence within the local government sector.
The objectives delivered from the web audit results are to:
1. Identify a ranking of sites - celebrate those councils working to achieve compliance with web standards, enhance accessibility, and functionality; and provide justification for councils wishing to improve their site.
2. Record the current state of standards compliance, functionality, online services, accessibility, and best practice amongst council websites.
This information is collated from the annual website snapshot survey. Audit results over time allow the trends in council sites to be tracked.
The 2021 ALGIM Website and Digital Experience Benchmark Report is now available (NB. Freely available to council members. Council/CCO login required).
The top performing websites in our 2021 web audit were:
