JACKSON — The State of Mississippi has selected NIC Inc., a provider of eGovernment services, for self-funded online government services. Terms were not disclosed.
The state awarded NIC a five-year contract that will run through Dec. 2015.
Through its Jackson-based subsidiary, Mississippi Interactive, LLC, NIC will provide electronic payment processing for the state of Mississippi, a new innovative design for the State’s official website and an acceleration of online services available to Mississippi residents and businesses.
