NIC Oregon hosts & supports over 100 Oregon government websites.

Our website services enable agencies to build and maintain websites that improve Oregonians' interactions with their government.

We can build a website for you

NIC Oregon offers a wealth of design, development, & consulting services to assist any agency with planning, building, and maintaining an effective website.

We offer an end-to-end suite of analysis, content strategy, design, development, & marketing services. We can also work side-by-side with PR firms to transform designs and prototypes to fully-functional websites.

All of this with a streamlined contracting process through the Oregon E-Government Program.

Your new website will be


Each feature or website NIC Oregon builds is designed to meet the rigorous usability and accessibility standards expected on government websites, such as federal Section 508 standards, international Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), and the Plain Language Act of 2010.

With accessibility experts on staff, we can help you navigate the criterion and rules to aid in preventing a failed audit, or assess an existing website for its errors and violations. Our website framework is built with accessibility in mind, giving your agency a solid foundation from the start.

Simple and concise

Even when you know precisely what content you need to have on a website, it may take a team of content strategy, user experience, and usability experts to create a website that ensures your content is effective, simple to use for visitors, and easy to maintain for staff.

Personas, card sort exercises, and other usability testing processes ensure we plan, create, and deliver an effective website that will resonate with your visitors. We can also train your staff to maintain and grow the website so you're ready for the future.

Gorgeous & on-brand

We understand that your branding matters. We build websites that inspire, stay on-brand, and are easy to maintain.

Our design, content strategy, and user experience experts will craft a website that resonates with your visitors and your staff. We also offer in-house marketing and branding consultation services in the case that your agency does not have a brand and wants to build (or rebuild) one.

Fast & findable

No one likes a slow-loading website. Our features are built with speed in mind so they run fast and smooth. We utilize Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), compression and zipping features, and world-class caching services to deliver quick-loading pages.

We also train you on what to look for when creating content to keep your pages lightweight. This helps ensure your visitors are happy and your site is effective.

Monitored 24x7

You never need to worry about your website being unavailable.

Hosting is backed by highly-trained engineers and administrators. We use redundant, geo-diverse, world-class data centers to ensure uptime and high-availability at all times, even during a disastrous event. 

Each website we host is independently monitored to ensure they receive top-notch support and communication.


Visitors expect that any website is equally usable on their desktop, phone, or tablet. Each design we make ensures a seamless experience regardless of device type.

Our templates also use modern, industry-standard responsive design frameworks.

They are packed with various mobile-ready features and ways to layout content and build an interface visitors will find familiar and simple to use on their devices.
