Further useability testing will be undertaken prior to website launch. 

The Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) has delayed the launch of its new website to allow further testing with industry users.

General Manager Communications and Marketing Laura Lewis said the department has invested three years into researching and developing a new user-centric website.

“We are determined to provide the best website with the highest intuitive useability for our customers,” Mrs Lewis said.

“To make sure this happens we’ll be undertaking additional useability testing with industry stakeholders to ensure nothing important has been missed and the new website works as intended.

“The exact date of the launch will be finalised as the project moves closer to completion but will be before the end of this year.”

The new DMP website was originally due to launch in July.

The department is seeking feedback on its current website via a short online survey which will be used to benchmark user satisfaction once the new website is launched.

Any regular website users interested in being involved in user testing of the new DMP website are invited to send their name and contact details to
