NIC Provides Update on Status of Pennsylvania Payments

OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 6, 2013--NIC Inc. (NASDAQ: EGOV) today announced it has learned that the Pennsylvania Treasury issued a press release stating that it has rejected four invoices, totaling nearly $3.48 million, previously submitted by the Company's subsidiary, Pennsylvania Interactive, LLC, for eGovernment services provided to the Commonwealth.

According to the Treasury's press release, the Treasury rejected the invoices because of the administration's failure to obtain necessary approvals from the Attorney General, insufficient justification of the specific payment amounts requested and an inadequate basis for granting a no-bid contract. According to the press release, the Treasury's rejection notice advised the administration to resubmit the Pennsylvania Interactive, LLC contract to the Office of Attorney General for review.

In comments to the media today, Commonwealth officials defended the legality of its contract with NIC and reiterated their interest in continuing to work with NIC to deliver eGovernment services in Pennsylvania. NIC has been responsive to the Commonwealth’s needs throughout the engagement and remains committed to helping the Commonwealth address the issues outlined by the Bureau of Fiscal Review.


“NIC is committed to be the best private sector partner the Commonwealth has ever worked with,” said Harry Herington, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NIC. “We will continue to operate in good faith and make ongoing investments in Pennsylvania’s eGovernment program for the benefit of Pennsylvania agencies and the citizens and businesses they serve, as we work through these issues.”
