IRS Wins Award for Best Government Web Site

Irs_logo_4The IRS issued a press release (IR-2004-131) today announcing that it has won a Keynote Performance Award, a new awards program designed to recognize excellence in web site performance. Keynote honored the fastest and most reliable web sites in three categories: e-commerce, e-government, and online travel and hospitality. In e-government, the IRS won the performance award for Best Transaction Reliability with an average score of 99.8%. It is a bit ironic, however, that the press release announcing the award is available on Keynote's web site, but not on the IRS's web site, as of 3:15 pm EST.

Update: The press release is now (5:00 pm EST) available on the IRS web site.

I received an email of IR-2004-131 at 12:53 CDT. The IRS ftp site lists a last-modified date for the PDF of 2:02 PM, 10/25/04. The "expert interface" of the FTP website is much more current than any other part of the IRS website.
