Specifications include, but are not limited to: A cornerstone of FWP’s mission is serving the public and being transparent about the management issues we face.
Our website is pivotal in this effort and houses a tremendous amount of scientific data, historical wildlife and
fisheries information, all while being our primary tool for public outreach, generating revenue, increasing visitation,
constituency building and news dissemination. Additionally, the website serves as a critical portal for our
Automated Licensing Service, point of sale and reservation platform.
Website analytics prove that as our constituents become more digitally focused, the use of our website continues to
increase. This includes web traffic to our information portals like the Hunt Planner and FishMT, along with an
increase in the number of people purchasing licenses and camping reservations online.
Unfortunately, our website technology and design has failed to keep up with the increase in use. As it currently
functions, it is inefficient for agency users and difficult to navigate for the public. The primary goal of this project is
to implement our website on a modern and maintainable platform. Additionally, new technology will allow us to
take advantage of the structure, integrations, and features to provide a better experience to our customers.
