Campaign: Search

Cross-departmental searchability

Have a main search engine that will search the infromation and data on all governemnt sites. Sometimes it vague which department has the infromation on a subject. A general search based that uses key-word tag technology would eliminate the user having to navigate multiple government websites to find what they are looking for.
