Alabama re-ups NIC for portal operations

Alabama residents who rely on the state's Web portal for more than 50 online services, will continue to depend on NIC Inc. to operate the site.

NIC of Olathe, Kan., won a two-year contract with renewal options through 2010. The contract is worth about $2 million annually, an NIC spokesman said.

NIC has run the site (www.alabama.gov) for Alabama since 2002, when it was first hired. The company's three-year contract ended in 2005, after which the state requested proposals for a new contract.

Alabama uses a self-funded solution to provide its e-government services. During the last three years, NIC has worked with more than 25 state agencies to develop more than 100 interactive services at no upfront cost.

The state's portal hosted nearly 3 million visitors in 2005, up from about 1.5 million in 2004. The portal offers more than 50 online services, including a variety of business tax filings, trucking permits, personalized vehicle tag reservations, hunting and fishing licenses and a suite of professional license renewals.

Alabama Interactive Inc., a Montgomery-based wholly owned subsidiary of NIC, markets, operates and maintains the site.

NIC has about 290 employees and $55.8 million in 2004 revenues, according to Hoover's Online, Austin, Texas.
