NIC Awarded Contract to Continue Operating the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Pre-Employment Screening Program

Sponsored by Businesswire

NIC Federal, a subsidiary of NIC Inc. (EGOV), has been selected by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to continue operating its award-winning Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP).

PSP is a digital government service that helps motor carriers inform hiring decisions by offering immediate and secure access to a commercial driver’s five-year crash and three-year inspection histories.

“Since 2010, industry adoption of PSP has helped improve the safety of commercial motor vehicles on America’s roadways,” said Laura Johnson, General Manager of NIC Federal. “NIC is proud to continue delivering this safety program on behalf of FMCSA.”

Procured via a no-cost contracting model funded entirely by transactional fees paid by end users of the service, NIC will deliver complete operational and secure payment processing support for PSP on behalf of FMCSA.

“At NIC, we strive to enhance the government experience for all. Use of contracting models that are funded by transaction fees—not appropriations—transform how digital government services are delivered and consumed for the better,” said Danielle Schefer, Vice President of NIC Federal. “By placing greater accountability on the part of private industry to build, enhance, and actively promote digital government services that citizens and business will want to use, the ‘build it and forget it’ mind-set is avoided—resulting in cost savings, improved constituent experiences and increased efficiency for government.”
