In the 2013 Session, House Bill 5401 amended Section 215.985, Florida Statutes to create the Transparency Florida Act User Experience Task Force (UETF). The primary mission of the Task Force was to, “develop and recommend a design for consolidating existing state-managed websites that provide public access to state operational and fiscal information into a single website.” The UETF had two deliverables, a work plan due October 1, 2013, and a final recommendation due March 1, 2014 to the to the Governor, the Chief Financial Officer, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the President of the Senate. The UETF conducted nine open meetings between September 2013 and February 2014 to develop the work plan and recommendation. The UETF delivered the work plan on September 30, 2013, and delivered the final recommendation on February 26, 2014. Records of these meetings and the deliverables are available at the links below.
