GSA Launches Mobile Version of GobiernoUSA.gov
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- The U.S. General Services Administration launched today a mobile version of GobiernoUSA.gov, the official portal of the U.S. government in Spanish with access to a bounty of government websites, programs and services. As part of the federal government's ongoing effort to make information more accessible to all Americans, the public can now use mobile devices to more easily search for government information on such popular topics as employment, government benefits, food safety and education. The mobile site is accessible at m.gobiernousa.gov.
"Given the penetration of mobile devices, particularly in Hispanic communities, this is the natural evolution in providing information to the public anywhere, anytime, and in Spanish," said Martha Dorris, GSA's Deputy Associate Administrator for Citizen Services. "Through m.gobiernousa.gov users can easily and immediately find government information to make decisions affecting their lives, such as checking changes at airport security checkpoints, filing taxes for free or finding student financial assistance.
According to a recent Pew Internet and American Life Project report, Hispanics are among the most active users of the mobile Web. They take advantage of a much greater range of their phones' features, and are more inclined to use their mobile phones to access the Internet.
The mobile-friendly version of GobiernoUSA.gov complements the English language USA.gov's mobile version, m.usa.gov, which launched last July. The mobile version of GobiernoUSA.gov allows users to access a wide range of government programs and services on mobile devices without complicated graphics and lengthy text that can bog down mobile Web browsers.
GSA's Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies also provides helpful information to the public through Kids.gov, Pueblo.gsa.gov, and Consumeraction.gov and its Spanish counterpart, Consumidor.gov. GSA's Federal Citizen Information Center provides phone access to the public at 1-800-FED-INFO, free publications, and other programs. GSA facilitates more than 245 million instances of public engagement each year.
As the federal government's workplace solutions provider, the U.S. General Services Administration works to foster an effective, sustainable and transparent government for the American people. GSA's expertise in government workplace solutions include:
• Effective management of government assets including more than 9,600 government-owned or leased buildings and 215,000 vehicles in the federal fleet, and preservation of historic federal properties;
• Leveraging the government's buying power through responsible acquisition of products and services making up approximately 14 percent of the government's total procurement dollars;
• Providing innovative technology solutions to enhance government efficiency and increase citizen engagement; and
• Promoting responsible use of federal resources through development of governmentwide policies ranging from federal travel to property and management practices.
