eGovernment Through Innovative Partnerships

Our public-private partnerships align goals and mitigate risks for government.

Our self-funded model: works for government, works for business, works for people.

 

NIC is the originator and only provider of the self-funded enterprise approach to delivering eGovernment services.

How self-funded works:
  1. Modest efficiency fees usually ranging from $1-3 are applied to a limited number of services, which covers the cost of building, maintaining, and expanding the eGovernment platform at no cost to government.
  2. Transaction fees create a sustainable funding stream to support long-term eGovernment growth. (A dozen states have been using self-funding to deliver services for more than a decade.)
  3. Funding from this small number of fee services supports enterprise-wide eGovernment expansion. With this funding source in place, 75% of eGovernment services are typically at no cost to users.
  4. The ongoing funding source is reinvested in building new services.
  5. Since NIC is only paid when eGovernment services are used, we have a built-in incentive to deploy in-demand services and market them aggressively to citizens and businesses.
  6. Strong central governance sets the eGovernment strategy, determines priorities, sets efficiency fees and maintains data control.
 

Aligned Success

Under the no-cost model, NIC typically takes on all of the risk for the success of the project. Unlike time-and-materials or fixed-price projects, NIC doesn’t generate revenue until the service is in production with the approval of the agency. We bear the costs of all hardware, software and development. We’re successful only when a service is used. Your goals and ours are aligned.

 
Our service doesn’t end at implementation.
 

Best-in-class services allow us to quickly tailor a custom solution for your agency by deploying your new eGovernment service in a matter of weeks rather than months.

 
Our dedicated team supports your solution with:
 
  • Continuous outreach and social media strategies
  • Customer service support
  • Custom marketing plans
  • Governance
