March 09, 2016Maplewood License Office contract up for bid
The Missouri Office of Administration is now accepting management contract bids for the Maplewood License Office. Interested individuals and groups must submit their bids to operate the Maplewood License Office by April 4, 2016.
Prospective bidders may also tour the Maplewood office from 6 to 7 p.m., March 15 to gain perspective on how a license office is operated. For a list of bid opportunities and bid response instructions, visit missouribuys.mo.gov/bidboard.
In fiscal year 2015, more than 110,000 transactions were conducted at the Maplewood office, generating $376,321 in agent processing fees.
The Missouri Department of Revenue currently oversees 177 license offices which are each operated by independent agents. All of the license offices were put out for bid under the competitive procurement process in 2009. Contracts were awarded for one year with three one-year renewal options. The move toward a competitive procurement process of the license offices overhauled the way local motor vehicle and driver license offices are awarded and was one of the first actions of Gov. Jay Nixon’s administration.
Bids will be evaluated on areas such as expertise of the personnel proposed, methods proposed for performing the services and whether the individual or entity is a not-for-profit, political subdivision, a Missouri Certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) or a Missouri Service-Disabled Veteran Enterprise.
