Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from National Information Consortium

    NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The State of Tennessee just got
 a new look.  State government officials and the Tennessee Information Division
 subsidiary of NIC (Nasdaq: EGOV), today launched Tennessee's official Internet
 portal, TennesseeAnytime (http://www.TennesseeAnytime.org ).  The site
 includes a host of new applications designed to expand individuals' and
 businesses' access to government services.
     "I am pleased to announce that effective today, our state government is
 open for business 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year,"
 reported Governor Don Sundquist.
     The new state portal will allow for one-stop access to government.  In
 addition to state government information and services, links will help direct
 Tennesseans to local and federal resources.  By integrating access to local,
 state, and federal government services on one site, TennesseeAnytime offers
 convenience for individuals and businesses, and enhances government
 efficiency, which translates into savings for all Tennesseans.
     "With TennesseeAnytime, things like renewing your driver's license or
 checking on child support are now as easy as checking your e-mail," remarked
 Debra Luling, TennesseeAnytime's General Manager.  "Nearly 6,000 people have
 renewed their driver's license through the Internet since the online renewal
 service was introduced in October.  As more people discover the ease and
 convenience of TennesseeAnytime, demand for online government services will
 continue to increase."
     In unveiling the site, Chief Information Officer (CIO) Bradley Dugger
 stated, "Over time, by making more services and records available online, we
 will be creating a more efficient and effective state government."  Future
 plans for the site include online occupational licensing for over 90 health
 care professions and interactive motor vehicle record searches.
     "The new site is not just about a face lift, " remarked Lou Kompare,
 Director of the Center for Effective Government.  "This site and the future
 are about putting applications online that help citizens and businesses
 interact with their government.  It's about making government more responsive
 and accessible."
     TennesseeAnytime.org will be managed by NIC at no cost to the state.  For
 more than a decade, NIC has used the Internet to help individuals and
 businesses get the most out of their government, 24 hours a day.  NIC has a
 long track record of customer satisfaction, designing and delivering online
 government services to communities.
 
     NIC, "The eGovernment Company(TM)," delivers more Web-enabled government
 solutions than any other provider in the world.  The company is helping to
 transform the relationships between government and the communities it serves
 by providing convenient online government services that make life easier for
 businesses and citizens.  Through partnerships at all levels of government,
 NIC manages transactions for hundreds of state & local agencies that serve
 more than 44 million people in the United States and Canada.  For more

 implementation of NIC's business model and its development of new products and
 services are forward-looking statements. There are a number of important
 factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those
 suggested or indicated by such forward-looking statements. These include,
