The Supreme Council Website Award is judged by ALGIM and is a non-nomination award. The results for this award are based on an evaluation of participating New Zealand council websites against New Zealand Government Web Standards (self assessment), ALGIM's Self Assessment Council Website Survey (snapshot of the sector select functionality questions), the Blind Foundation testing of an accessibility feature on each Council website, Enquiry Response testing (conducted by ALGIM) and Best Practice Review including mobile responsive design (conducted by ALGIM). The New Zealand Government Web Standards are sourced from documentation supplied from the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA).
To be eligible for consideration for the Supreme Council Website Award your Council is required to participate in the following:
- ALGIM Self Assessment Survey on Web Standards WCAG 2.0
- ALGIM Self Assessment Council Website Survey (snapshot of the sector select functionality questions)
- Response time to website and social media query from customer (completed by ALGIM)
Links to the WCAG 2.0 and Web Snapshot surveys inviting all local authorities to participate will be distributed via email, and completion closing date for the 2016 ALGIM Web & Digital Awards to be advised.
Overall rankings published by ALGIM will highlight all Councils, including those that did not complete the ‘Self Assessment Surveys’.
