We are the largest single provider of internet services for our state government but certainly not all. We support over 165 websites, mostly within Oregon.gov. We help agencies move payment processes online. Our single year high in collecting payments over the internet is $3 billion. We provide many Internet applications such as licensing, public meetings, training portals, event management and hundreds of services to dynamically lookup information. We support the state’s largest collaboration portal used by state government, businesses, vendors, and citizens working to support the state’s mission. And we support government transparency with the dynamic open data portal viewed over 20 million times. Finally, we are working to use the Internet to expand two way interaction between government and the residents of Oregon.
