No tax dollars required: NIC’s eGovernment solution requires no tax or appropriated dollars. Under a self-funded model, business users pay a modest transaction fee for select value-added online services. The majority of eGovernment services for both businesses and citizens are provided at no charge to end users.
Nebraska Interactive works with some of the largest agencies and we take pride in the innovation we bring to the table. Our application development process is broken down into 6 phases where we will plan, build, and thoroughly test the application.
Nebraska Interactive stays up to date with technology trends and builds fully responsive, 508-compliant websites. Meadowlark, the Content Management System we developed, utilizes Drupal and is a comprehensive website management tool that is user-friendly and secure.
Nebraska Interactive will help market your application whether it is creating a unique flyer that is distributed across the state, press releases to local and national media outlets, or displaying marketing materials at trade shows. One of our goals is to help your agency grow adoption and make your online service a success.
Once an application is launched, we’re still very much involved. We might even obsess for a little while about how well it’s going, checking in with you, stalking Google Analytics, and sharing the news with the world on our social media platforms and national news network.
Even after all the excitement dies down, we’ve still got your back. We provide application support right from our Lincoln office. Users can get ahold of us via Email, Live Chat, and a toll-free hotline (we call it the “Bat Phone”). Or they can choose from any number of self-help options such as FAQs or application demonstrations.
"Self-funding has given Nebraska the opportunity to function entrepreneurially. NIC’s solution provides an incentive for agencies to participate by building online services and engaging the public with effective marketing. The enterprise component is very important to Nebraska because it permits agencies to offer services and information that might not otherwise be possible due to fiscal pressures. Businesses and citizens expect government to offer services on the Web, and the self-funded model allows us to do this without being encumbered by the budget process. It also lets the portal become one less issue for me to deal with during each budget cycle.”

"The Nebraska Board of Public Accountancy wanted to offer CPA licensees, the convenience of online license renewals, and CPE reporting. Through partnering with Nebraska.gov [Nebraska Interactive], the Board successfully launched both services. Nebraska.gov [Nebraska Interactive] has been very helpful in the creation of eGovernment services for our office as we continue to work with them to improve efficiencies."

"The new Nebraska Department of Veterans' Affairs website provides the public with quality information in a user-friendly format. Our partnership with Nebraska.gov [Nebraska Interactive] was key in assisting us to complete this project. We believe that we will be able to serve America’s heroes better since they will have more accessibility. Working with Nebraska.gov, everyone’s a winner. Especially those who we are proud to serve; our veterans!"

“This online service [Online Handicap Permits] saves medical professionals days and even weeks to receive their permit in the mail and has made it possible for the DMV to eliminate the backlog of applications. This service epitomizes government efficiency and innovation. This is only one of the services we benefit from on a daily basis for over 10 years of collaborative partnership with Nebraska Interactive, Nebraska.gov.”
