(Carson City, NV; February 23, 2010) – The Nevada State Purchasing Division has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to develop the ground-breaking new Nevada Business Portal that will eventually allow Nevada businesses to conduct most or all of their transactions with state and local governments through one convenient online site. The Nevada Business Portal was proposed by Secretary of State Ross Miller and approved by the 2009 Nevada Legislature.
“When the Portal is up and running, I expect more companies will come to Nevada because doing business with public agencies here will be so much more streamlined than in competing states,” said Secretary of State Miller when the RFP was issued. “The Portal will save company executives time and money and will be a major factor when they are looking to start, expand, or relocate their businesses. The impact it will have on their bottom line will get their attention. I’m very encouraged by the progress we’re making in establishing this one-of-a-kind service for businesses.”
The one-stop shop portal will allow businesses to conduct a variety of government transactions, from getting or renewing their annual business licenses, to registering their vehicle fleets, to paying their state taxes, by entering their data just once and paying for all the services with just one online transaction. The Portal is expected to help generate additional state revenue by increasing corporate filings in Nevada and improving efficiencies in a number of state agencies. It will reduce redundancy, eliminate many paper-based transactions and manual data entries that can lead to errors and delays, and aid in recovering uncollected fees due to current inefficiencies in inter-agency communications.
