Welcome to SC.Gov
South Carolina has replaced its tired, aging, state-run web portal (mysc.gov) with sc.gov, a spiffed-up site being run by SC Interactive, a subsidiary of NIC Inc.
One of the biggest changes is the list of services now online, from driver's license renewals to criminal record checks to reserving a cabin at a state park. Many of these services had been scattered around various S.C. government sites, but it's good to have them in one place.
Now if the state could only manage to get its campaign filing records online. Or get its attorney general's office to put AG opinions BACK online.
The state has an interesting deal going here. NIC doesn't charge the state. Instead, it gets to pitch state agencies to use its Web tools (for a fee, of course), and it gets to charge a small fee for some of the services put online using its tools. An oversight board is supposed to keep the fees from getting out of hand.
Welcome to the 21st century, South Carolina - at least in one regard.
