NIC Acquires Texas Web Portal Contract From BearingPoint



May 29, 2009 By

NIC Inc. announced Friday it has acquired the management contract for TexasOnline, the state's government Web portal. The portal was formerly managed by BearingPoint, which declared bankruptcy and agreed to restructuring in February 2009.

The acquisition will give NIC, which manages and builds government portals for hundreds of local governments and 22 states, an audition with the Texas Department of Information Resources. TexasOnline is currently up for re-bid; the new contract will begin in 2010. NIC said it has responded to Texas' request for offer (RFO) for the new contract.

"We will continue to work diligently with the state and current TexasOnline employees to ensure a seamless transition with no interruption to those who use the official state portal or any of the master work-order solutions," said Harry Herington, the CEO of NIC, in a statement Friday.

According to BearingPoint, since TexasOnline was launched in 2000, the portal has received more than 140 million visits, processed more than 80 million financial transactions, collected more than $7 billion in revenue for participating state and local government clients, and delivered more than 800 services.

TexasOnline is self-funded. The up-front costs of Web site management and development are recouped with transaction fees attached to services provided by the Web site.

Deloitte acquired much of BearingPoint's North American public-sector practice in March 2009.
