Potosi License Office contract up for bid

JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Office of Administration is now accepting management contract bids for the Potosi License Office. Interested individuals and groups must submit their bids to operate the Potosi License Office by Dec. 19.

A copy of the Request for Proposal (RFP) bidders are required to use to develop their bids will be available on the Missouri Office of Administration's website at http://oa.mo.gov/ starting Nov. 24. Prospective bidders may also tour the Potosi office from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., Dec. 2 to gain perspective on how a license office is operated.

In fiscal year 2014, more than 34,000 transactions were conducted at the Potosi office, generating $112,929 in agent processing fees.

The Missouri Department of Revenue oversees 178 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.
