"As the official Internet gateway of Oklahoma, we are committed to providing citizens and businesses with efficient online access to government."
- OK.gov's Mission Statement
OK.gov, the state's official web portal, has provided Oklahoma citizens and businesses with 24/7 access to state government information and services since 2001. The portal offers more than 374,000 pages of information and interactive services, which are accessed nearly 25 million times each month.
OK.gov was created to improve access to government, reduce service-processing costs and enable state agencies to provide a higher quality of service to their constituents. Oklahoma's government uses a variety of information technologies to support these initiatives, but the use of integrated web portals, like OK.gov, bring these initiatives together. OK.gov offers numerous possibilities to expand government services online, allowing citizens to interact closely with their state government, and revolutionize operational procedures at the state level.
OK.gov is a collaborative effort between the Oklahoma Office of State Finance (OSF) and Oklahoma Interactive, LLC to help Oklahoma government entities web-enable their information services. Oklahoma Interactive operates, maintains, and markets OK.gov and is part of eGovernment firm NIC's family of companies.
NIC is the nation's leading provider of government websites, online services, and secure payment processing solutions. The company's innovative eGovernment services help reduce costs and increase efficiencies for government agencies, citizens, and businesses across the country. The NIC family of companies provides eGovernment solutions for more than 3,000 federal, state, and local agencies that serve 98 million people in the United States. Additional information can be found at NIC's website.
eGovernment is not only a good idea, it is quickly becoming a necessity. As scrutiny over government budgets increases, the efficiencies that eGovernment provides is transforming government processes everywhere. eGovernment has already generated many changes to laws and policies, and all levels of government have begun to recognize the emergence of eGovernment as having a profound effect on state government.
