Nearly 60,000 Oklahoma Professionals Conduct Licensing Services Online at http://Licensing.OK.gov
Oklahoma City – August 18, 2009 – Oklahoma physicians, nurses, real estate agents, and home inspectors are just a few of the more than 120 types of professional licensing services available online at http://Licensing.OK.gov. During the first seven months of 2009, nearly 60,000 professionals applied for or renewed their license(s) online, representing an increase of 26 percent from 2008.
"The increase in online adoption is proof that we are responding appropriately to requests for streamlined access to government services," said Mark Mitchell, General Manager of OK.gov. "In the upcoming year, we plan to add many more state agencies to our list of online professional licensures."
Since January 2007, online licensing services participating in the ‘Go Green Oklahoma’ study have reduced paper consumption amongst state agencies by over 550,000 sheets of paper. ‘Go Green Oklahoma’ is a study available at http://GoGreen.OK.gov showcasing how Oklahoma eGovernment is helping to reduce the carbon footprint by reducing paper consumption and citizen travel to government facilities.
