About the Oklahoma portal
OK.gov provides one-stop access to state and local government: a centralized electronic portal where citizens and businesses can easily access government information and services from multiple agencies. OK.gov operates as a public-private partnership managed by the Oklahoma Office of State Finance to create an Internet gateway facilitating interaction with Oklahoma government electronically.
This partnership was formed to:
A portal is a single entry point from which a variety of information, products and services are easily accessible. The OK.gov portal was designed to be intuitive and easy to use, regardless of a visitor's knowledge of state government structure. In addition, the portal is constantly being revised to better reflect new information and services provided by different state entities, as well as suggestions from portal visitors.
OK.gov's custom-designed eGovernment applications, coupled with a payment engine, allows individuals and businesses to interact with their government in a way that makes sense for their needs - fewer long lines, inconveniences or mail-related delays. OK.gov works with individual state departments and agencies to identify potential services that can be implemented through the portal.

No need for agencies to go to RFP for services and applications – Under a master agreement between OK.gov and the Office of State Finance (OSF), departments and agencies are able to enter into a contract with OSF under an interagency agreement and a formal proposal with the portal.
OK.gov is unique in that it's a model for cooperation. It is a government service administered for the good of the public, while benefiting from the entrepreneurial spirit and efficiencies found in private business. OK.gov was created by an act of the Oklahoma House Legislature HB 1662 in 2001 for the purpose of providing all Oklahomans equal access to governmental and other public information via the Internet. The initial phase, funded by the Oklahoma Office of State Finance, created the state portal and established the foundation for all levels of government to have an online presence. The second phase involves contracting with state agencies to bring their services online. The portal's self-funded model provides efficient online government services without the use of tax appropriations. Funding options for this phase include the assessment of modest convenience fees for a select set of commercially valuable information and services. The portal does not access convenience fees for government services or records that are traditionally free.
Convenience fees for online services are established following approval of the State Governmental Internet Applications Review Board, Office of State Finance and the associated agency.
