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.
