Network Issue Causes State Websites To Go Offline
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Many of Pennsylvania’s state government websites are offline, and officials aren’t providing details about the cause or its likely duration.
A spokeswoman for the governor’s office said Monday it was described to her as a network issue.
The outage appears to cover many of the agencies under the governor’s jurisdiction but not state courts or the Legislature. The sites are displaying a “server error” message.
Gov. Tom Corbett’s administration issued a no-bid contract to outsource web services to Kansas-based NIC Inc., effective Dec. 1.
Corbett spokeswoman Kelli Roberts says that transition hasn’t taken place yet.
