Item 4.01

Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

As previously reported in the Current Report on Form 8-K, on October 27, 2015, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of NIC Inc. (the “Company”) dismissed PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“ PwC”) as the independent registered public accounting firm of the Company effective upon the issuance by PwC of their reports on the consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2015, and the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2015 to be included in the filing of the related Annual Report on Form 10-K. On February 23, 2016, PwC issued their reports, and PwC’s dismissal as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm became effective.

The reports of PwC on the consolidated financial statements of the Company for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014 contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principle.

During the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, and the subsequent interim period through February 23, 2016, there were no disagreements with PwC on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of PwC, would have caused PwC to make reference thereto in their reports on the consolidated financial statements for such fiscal years.

During the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, and the subsequent interim period through February 23, 2016, there have been no reportable events (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).  The Company has authorized PwC to respond fully to any inquiries of Ernst & Young LLP, the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

The Company provided PwC with a copy of the disclosures in this Current Report on Form 8-K/A and requested that PwC furnish to the Company a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether they agree with the above statements and, if not, stating the respects in which they do not agree. A copy of PwC’s letter dated February 23, 2016 is attached as Exhibit 16.1 hereto.
