Whenever possible, this web site uses free and Open Source software as a cost effective solution to providing government services:
The backbone of this site's architecture is a locally developed Document/Content Management System which conforms to the Dublin Core Metadata Standards and used the Legislative Indexing Vocabulary as a controlled vocabulary. This system allows users to use web forms to create high-quality metadata records for resources. These records are then used to display resources on appropriate pages based upon object attributes (i.e. Subject, Creator, Type...).
The system includes a workflow management system: once a resource is created by a staff member, it must be formally published to the public web site by an "Approver" with the appropriate password.
