(Harrisburg) -- Many of Pennsylvania's state government websites are offline, and officials aren't providing many details about the cause or its likely duration.
A spokesman for the Office of Administration says the outages were a technical issue and not the result of a cyber-attack.
Spokesman Dan Egan says the websites that are down are the ones that are usually accessible through a web portal whose administration is being outsourced.
The outage appears to cover many of the agencies under the governor's jurisdiction, including the state Revenue Department on the last day to file taxes. The sites display a "server error" message.
Gov. Tom Corbett's administration issued a no-bid contract to outsource web services to Kansas-based NIC Inc., effective December 1st.
Egan says that transition hasn't taken place.
