NIC Montana is the eGovernment services provider for the State of Montana and has been since 2001. We offer and support hundreds of eGovernment solutions in partnership with state, county and city entities that benefit the citizens and businesses of Montana and beyond. NIC Montana provides services at no cost to our government partners through a unique funding model known as the Self-Funded Model.
The Self-Funded Model was developed by our parent company, NIC, and allows for the development and ongoing support of services at no cost through the collection of a nominal transaction fee on services already collecting payment. The transaction fee funds the state's eGovernment enterprise and is used to develop and support eGovernment services.
Montana was the 13th state to partner with NIC. NIC has partnerships in over half of the states across the nation. Some of the service NIC Montana has built in partnership with various government entities include Hunting and Fishing Licenses, Temporary Registration Permits, Unemployment Insurance Filing, and the Correctional Offender Network Search, to name a few.
Through the longstanding partnership with NIC Montana and use of the Self-Funded Model, the state has saved over $19 million since the start of our partnership in 2001.
As your partner, we want to make your project a success. The Self-Funded Model allows us to provide and maintain services at no cost to our state, county, and city partners.
