Digital marketing agency Civic has launched two new websites, for the Scotland Office and the Office of the Advocate General.

The launch of the Scotland Office site showcases a new look and feel for the government department, which aims to clarify the role of the Scotland Office and its involvement in the day to day devolution issues in Westminster and Holyrood.

The Secretary of State for Scotland is a keen advocate of new technology and the site incorporates both his blog and Twitter feeds.

Greig Tosh, MD, CIVIC commented: “We’ve implemented some effective social networking tools for the new Scotland Office site. This includes a blog – – and a Twitter account for the Secretary of State, which will feed recent posts to the blog.

"The blog also has an RSS feed to help people keep in touch. This really is e-democracy through Web 2.0 and shows how modern government is keen to engage with the public through technology.”

Civic has also launched a new site for the Office of the Advocate General (OAG) which follows a complementary look and feel to the Scotland Office site. The OAG provides legal advice in relation to Scots Law, instructs United Kingdom legislation applying to Scotland and represents Government departments in litigation in the Scottish Courts.
