Wisconsin is the latest state to sign with NIC Inc.
The company announced today that Wisconsin signed a 5-year agreement with the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Wisconsin Interactive Network LLC, to provide self-funded eGovernment services along with managing the state’s web portal at Wisconsin.gov.
The agreement extends through 2018 and includes five one-year renewels.
“In other states, NIC has developed hundreds of new eGovernment services that make conducting business with government more secure and efficient. We look forward to bringing these services to our Wisconsin citizens,” said Wisconsin Department of Administration Deputy Secretary Chris Schoenherr.
In a statement, NIC said it will focus on rapidly expanding the library of online services for Wisconsin businesses and citizens, as well as enhancing the transparency, accessibility and overall eGovernment experience in the state.
“We are excited to be partnering with the state of Wisconsin,” said NIC Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board Harry Herington. “In addition to developing world class eGovernment services under our self-funded model, our team in Madison looks forward to hiring locally, getting involved in the community, and contributing to the economy.”
Wisconsin is the latest state to partner with NIC, joining Mississippi, Delaware, Oregon, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, which began partnering with NIC over the past two years.
