delivers on both.”

with NIC to deliver innovative solutions that help reduce costs and increase
efficiencies for agencies, citizens and businesses.

Pennsylvanians interact with state government from standing in line to going
online,” said Logan. “We look forward to
working with PA Interactive to redesign the rest of the commonwealth’s websites
to better serve our customers – the people of Pennsylvania.”
