GSA releases revised USA.gov site

The General Services Administration (GSA) has revamped its USA.gov website to make it faster and more usable, mobile, and comprehensive.  The website, which is now 10 years old, has a search engine that is nine-times faster than before the upgrade.  USA.gov features 17 mobile applications, which according to GSA Associate Director Dave McClure will enable users to “leverage government information to make decisions affecting their daily lives.”  The site includes apps for product recalls, U.S Transportation Security Administration’s My TSA, National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s alternative fuel station locator, National Institute of Health’s MedLine Plus, FBI’s most wanted, and Veteran’s Affairs mobile.  In addition, the new website provides information and links to over 10,000 pages of government information at the federal, state, and local level on such issues as student loans, visa information, small business licensing.
