The International Budget Partnership (IBP) collaborated with Matrix Group International to launch a redesigned web site for a special initiative to promote public access to budget information and the adoption of accountable budget systems across the globe. IBP helps to make budget systems more responsive to the needs of poor and low-income people in society and, through the Open Budget Initiative (OBI); they hope to raise awareness to make these systems more transparent and accountable to the public.
Matrix Group worked closely with IBP to develop a dedicated web site that was the central location for information about the new Survey and was able to index the progress of the initiative globally. The new web site included:
- Dynamic flash map of the world – provides users with their countries budget transparency score and report.
- Web site redesign – incorporates the same branding elements of IBP, but clearly sets a separate distinctive tone for OBI.
- Updated CMS – information on the site, including the new interactive flash map pulls data from an XML file that gets the data from their content management system(CMS).
- New Google analytics tools and site search were added to help track traffic
