A company hired by Governor Tom Corbett's administration to run Pennsylvania's executive-branch websites will forego the $5.1-million it believed it was owed after state Treasurer Rob McCord refused to pay it.
A Corbett administration spokesman, Dan Egan, said Wednesday the administration and Kansas-based NIC Inc. agreed that it was in the best interest of their partnership to move on.
The administration hired the company under a five-year, no-bid contract late last year to manage the state's website infrastructure and technology. The contract initially was billed as a self-funding contract to be financed by new fees slapped on certain high-volume, online information requests by businesses.
But McCord cited concerns over the contract's legality and correctness, and a spokesman Gary Tuma says the invoices fly in the face of a self-funded contract.
