The Department of Treasury and Finance (DTF), in conjunction with the Northern Territory Government (NTG) has endorsed the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) and the Australian Government’s Web Accessibility National Transition Strategy (NTS).

To achieve compliance with the WCAG 2.0, DTF is currently implementing the NTS. At present, not all web content has been optimised for accessibility and therefore it may not meet this level of compliance yet.

If you are having trouble accessing any of the DTF pages or content within this site, please send an email (including the link to the page you are trying to access) to the department's Web Manager. You may need to upgrade your Internet Explorer browser with a free IE8 upgrade download from Microsoft.
