February 4, 2011 – The recent launch of the new Treasury.gov website and five other Treasury Department websites (FinancialStability.gov, SIGTARP.gov, MyMoney.gov, TIGTA.gov, and IRSOversightBoard.treasury.gov) is the first Cabinet-level website migration to Amazon Web Services (AWS), and a feather in Smartonix’s cap.  

We found this item of interest on MarketWire in their article, “Synteractive Recognizes the Launch of Treasury.gov 2.0.” The contract to re-design Treasury.gov was awarded to Smartronix, in June 2010. The team brought together authoritative industry experts in SharePoint, cloud computing, Web design, transparency, Open Government data, social collaboration, and emerging Web technologies to reach this milestone. 

“Smartronix is proud to partner with Synteractive as one of the leading small business innovators in open government, cloud computing and SharePoint development,” stated Joseph Gerczak, Executive VP of Smartronix. “Our successes with Recovery.gov and Treasury.gov are a result of the great teamwork we have had with Synteractive, TMP Government, and KPMG.” 

The site also has seamless integration with a variety of social media such as Twitter, Flickr, Facebook and YouTube, and the Treasury department has published a blog named “Treasury Notes.” It is nice to see the government embrace social media.
