SANTA FE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
The Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) of the State of New Mexico has signed a new long-term contract with New Mexico Interactive, LLC (NMI) to provide eGovernment services. The new, two-year contract also includes two, one-year renewal options that the New Mexico MVD can exercise to extend the contract through June 2018.
The Santa Fe-based company has been providing eGovernment services to the New Mexico MVD since 2009. During this partnership, New Mexico Interactive has developed numerous websites, online services, and mobile applications for the MVD, including the Vehicle Registration Suite (VRS), driver history records (Interactive, Point to Point and Bulk), and driver monitoring.
“MVD has partnered with New Mexico Interactive to dramatically improve what the New Mexico motoring public experiences when they enter one of our offices or connect with us online,” said Mark Williams, MVD Director. “We’ve found New Mexico Interactive staff forward-thinking and helpful as MVD works to provide outstanding service—to every customer, for every transaction, every time.”
The contract was awarded following a competitive bid process, and went into effect on July 1, 2014. As with the original contract, New Mexico Interactive will continue to provide eGovernment services for the MVD using a transaction-funded solution. This model provides eGovernment services to the division without using appropriated taxpayer budget dollars.
“We appreciate the confidence that the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division continues to place in us,” said Harry Herington, NIC Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. “Over the past five years we have delivered several efficiencies to the motorists of New Mexico, and we look forward to bringing even more innovation to them in the future.”
The collaborative effort between New Mexico’s Motor Vehicle Division and New Mexico Interactive lead to the implementation of the VRS. The VRS standardized the process for all authorized entities (dealerships, authorized retailers, title service companies, super title service companies, MVD field offices, and municipalities) to issue temporary tags, demonstration permits, transport permits, and transit permits. The VRS is an easy-to-use online system that enables entities to enter vehicle information and generate print-on-demand tags on their own computer. Instead of purchasing paper temp tags in advance, entities can create and print the temp tag at the time of sale. Temp tags contain unique inventory control numbers assigned to each dealership, and can be issued at any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Print-on-demand tags replaced all handwritten permits starting January 1, 2013.
