GovPay Payment Processing and Payment Management Services


​​​​Over 25 years ago, NIC set out to become the leading provider of digital solutions for government agencies. Today, we provide federal, state, and local governments with a suite of integrated technologies that make processing ​payments easier, more secure, and more citizen-focused than anyone else. Whether you need a flexible omnichannel platform, fully PCI-Level-1 compliant transactions, or just a better way to deposit, track, and report funds, we have a solution for you.​ NIC Maryland's secure and robust payment engine allows state and local governments to offer secure and convenient payment processing services to their constituents.​​

The enterprise payment engine manages all transactions that flow between government agencies and their constituents regardless of the payment type or the supported payment channel. Our payment solutions not only meet accounting and audit standards, but they also exceed the standards set by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) and are hosted in our Level 1 Data Centers to ensure they are readily available to our partners on a near 24x7 basis.

NIC's multi-channel solutions include internet, IVR, mobile, CheckFreePay walk-in cash, and Point-of-Sale (POS), creating a full suite of payment processing options for Maryland agencies.
