State of Nebraska Signs New Contract with NIC’s Nebraska Interactive to Continue as the State’s Digital Government Services Provider

LINCOLN, Neb.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The state of Nebraska has signed a new long-term contract with
Lincoln-based Nebraska
Interactive LLC
to continue as the state’s provider of digital
government innovation. The contract includes an initial five-year term
with an option to renewal for an additional two-year period that could
extend services through April 2026. Nebraska Interactive is a part of
NIC Inc. (Nasdaq: EGOV), the nation’s leading provider of digital
government services.

“All of us at NIC appreciate the trust the State of Nebraska continues
to place in us. It is a long-standing partnership in which we pioneered
together to launch digital government in the days before the World Wide
Web,” said Harry Herington, NIC Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of
the Board. “Since those early days, we have not wavered from our single
focus to use the very latest technology to transform how citizens and
businesses interact with their government. Nebraska is a great example
of best-in-class digital government solutions creating convenience and
efficiencies, and making a difference in people’s lives.”

Nebraska Interactive partners with more than 230 Nebraska state
agencies, boards, commissions, and local governments to deliver
convenient online services to citizens and businesses. Currently, the
company manages more than 950 interactive government applications,
including the online suite of services for the Secretary of State and
over a dozen for the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles. In 2018 the
groundbreaking Nebraska Brand Committee mobile application was
completed, which allows inspectors to track cattle in the field and
report results using an iPad with or without Internet connectivity. The
Company also develops and manages the online, informational presence for
more than 100 state and local entities.

“We are grateful for the collaboration we have with Nebraska
Interactive,” said Ed Toner, CIO of the State of Nebraska. “While my
team and I are focused on creating more efficient and effective
solutions to serve the State’s technology needs, it is good to know we
have an innovative partner in Nebraska Interactive to expand the number
of modern digital government services available for the people of our
state.”

Since Nebraska Interactive began providing digital government services
in 1995, the state has received several national awards and honors,
annually. More than a dozen awards we received in 2018, recognizing the Department
of Motor Vehicles
, four awards for the Department
of Natural Resources
, and a StateScoop 50 Award for IT Innovation of
Year for the Nebraska
State Patrol Conceal Handgun Permit Renewal/Replacement Permits

application. In addition, in 2018 the state was recognized as a finalist
in the Center for Digital Government’s Government Experience awards,
which honors states that are providing a citizen-centric approach to
delivering government services.

As with the original contract, Nebraska Interactive will continue to
provide services to the state using a sustainable transaction-based
funding solution. This model provides for the development, maintenance,
security, customer service support, and more to the state typically
without the use of appropriated taxpayer budget dollars.
