NIC Inc. is a provider of eGovernment services. The Company operates in two segments: outsourced portal businesses and software & services businesses. In the Companys outsourced portal businesses, the Company enters into long-term contracts with state and local governments to design, build, and operate Internet-based, enterprise-wide portals on their behalf. These portals consist of websites and applications that allow businesses and citizens to access government information online and complete secure transactions, such as applying for a permit, retrieving government records, or filing a government-mandated form or report. The Companys software & services businesses operates through NIC Technologies, LLC (NIC Technologies), the Companys subsidiary, which provides software development and services, other than enterprise-wide outsourced portal services, to state and local governments as well as federal agencies.
