NIC Announces 20th Anniversary Of EGovernment

Before the Internet was available to the public 20 years ago, NIC Inc. helped shape the eGovernment industry, revolutionizing the way citizens and businesses interact with federal, state, and local government. Today, as the company announces its 20 th anniversary, it remains the company most closely identified with fueling the development and growth of eGovernment.

“Since 1992, part of NIC’s DNA has been finding efficiencies for businesses and citizens as they interact with government,” said Harry Herington, NIC’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. “This focus on efficient solutions has driven us to launch many firsts on behalf of government – the first live chat customer support on a state website, the first state government iPad application, and much more. Our future success depends on NIC continuing to drive eGovernment innovation.”

NIC Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer, and General Counsel William (Brad) Bradley, working as a state bar association volunteer, drafted the 1990 legislation that authorized creation of the Information Network of Kansas. INK awarded Kansas Information Consortium, now an NIC subsidiary, the network manager contract and began eGovernment operations in 1992.

“Kansas has always had a pioneering spirit,” said Bradley. “It was very progressive in making government information accessible via modem-to-modem in the early 1990s.”

From its modest start serving only Kansas, NIC now develops online eGovernment services and manages the official web portals for 27 states and two federal agencies. In its 20-year history, NIC has created more than 7,000 online services and in 2011 securely processed more than $17 billion on behalf of its government partners.
