ST. PAUL (AP) -- The State has contracted with the company NIC Conquest to build a Web site where businesses can complete Uniform Commercial Code filings and perform corporate record and trademark searches.
The $3 million project is scheduled for completion in 2001. NIC Conquest is a division of Kansas-based National Information Consortium, Inc.
The "eGovernment" system will allow businesses to file articles of incorporation, amendments, pay their yearly franchise fee and perform searches through the Secretary of State's Web site.
"Our goal is to make public records easily accessible and streamline the processes for businesses in our state," said Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer.
The company's document management systems are installed in 80 county offices and five state agencies.
