Smart Move: NIC Picks Up Intelligent Decision

By William Welsh, Staff Writer

OCT. 17 ? National Information Consortium Inc., an e-government solutions provider, acquired Oct. 16 Intelligent Decision Technologies Ltd. of Longmont, Colo. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

With the acquisition, NIC of Overland Park, Kan., plans to combine its multistate filing portal for the trucking industry with IDT's operations, company officials said.

IDT offers business-to-government solutions to help the trucking industry comply with the Commercial Vehicle Information System Network adminstered by the Federal Highway Administration.

IDT's electronic credentialing services for commercial vechicles include registration, permitting and tax filing software. IDT has contracts with state governments in California, Kentucky, Maryland and Minnesota.

"This acquisition accelerates and strengthens our entry into the business portal sector," said Jim Dodd, NIC's president and chief executive officer. "It will allow NIC to leverage its e-government expertise on behalf of regulated industries such as transportation, which are required to file periodically with multiple government entities."
