Kansas re-ups NIC for e-gov portal services

National Information Consortium Inc. won a seven-year, multimillion-dollar contract extension from Kansas to continue providing services through the state's government portal, the company announced Jan. 23. The value of the contract was not disclosed.

Under the contract, NIC of Overland Park, Kan., will provide infrastructure and staff expertise needed to maintain and host the state's self-funded e-government portal.

NIC also will help Kansas deliver more integrated applications to businesses and citizens of the state, said Chris Neff, an NIC spokesman.

For example, the company is helping the state expand the services offered through its one-stop business center by adding more services for online business registration and electronic filing of articles of incorporation, he said.

The portal, known as accessKansas, offers about 400 interactive government services for business and citizens, including applications that support online Uniform Commercial Code filings with the Kansas secretary of state, professional license renewals and transportation filings for the trucking industry.

The portal is managed and operated by the Kansas Information Consortium, a wholly owned subsidiary of NIC.

NIC designs, implements and maintains e-government portals for state and local governments. The company has 288 employees and annual revenue of $39.2 million.
