Just like the owner who rewards a successful coach with a contract extension, Government Technology reports that the State of Utah has extended its e-government portal services contract with Utah Interactive, Inc. for another four years. UII, led first by Ric Brown and now by Amy Sawyer, has a stellar record of accomplishments since its launch in 1999.
The Center for Digital Government and The Progress & Freedom Foundation ranked Utah fifth, overall, in its 2000 Digital State Survey up from its overall 12th ranking in 1998, and 25th ranking in 1997.
The Center has ranked Utah seventh in the nation in its eGovernment Services in the last two years, and seventh among all states for sustained eGovernment leadership over the last five years.
Utah Interactive is a wholly owned subsidiary firm of the National Information Consortium (NIC).
