An official website of the State of Georgia.
How you know
The .gov means it’s official.
Local, state, and federal government websites often end in .gov. State of Georgia government websites and email systems use “georgia.gov” or “ga.gov” at the end of the address. Before sharing sensitive or personal information, make sure you’re on an official state website.

Tools and guidance for all state organizations.
Manage your site by knowing what's working and what's not.
The state digital standards and guidelines apply to all Georgia state agency websites and applications. Input and updates to this governance is sought through the Digital Center of Excellence from the public and private sector, and results in digital standards that all state organizations must follow. Guidelines are also published to provide recommendations and best practices.
Guidelines for content help to improve readability and findability on the web. This can include using plain language, being friendly, and writing and organizing in a way that makes information easy to find.
Technical standards are meant to include ways that web technologies are used to display and relate information, such as how to make the content accessible and usable, and best practices for code and markup to align with the abilities of various browsing devices.
Help keep the state standards updated and relevant by joining the DCoE.
We encourage all state organizations to use the Orchard Design System for their digital properties. The design system provides stylesheets, typography, color palettes, component design, and more.
