The costliest purchases of IT services last month by one of the state’s most active and resident-facing entities reflect both its ongoing modernization and the exploration of new ways of doing business.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) made only nine IT services buys in March, for which it spent $7,510,697. Most of that money — $6,380,148 — went toward its five most expensive purchases. Here, with rounding, is where that money went according to information on past state purchases from the State Contract and Procurement Registration System:
  • $2.1 million to CGI for consulting services related to state Senate Bill 210, from 2019, which put new data and electronic compliance requirements on DMV by establishing the Heavy-Duty Vehicle Inspection and Maintenance Program. This is a seven-month contract, from March 4-Oct. 3.
  • $1.8 million to Data Science, now part of Oracle, for SICURA enterprise software and/or “license keys, implementation and maintenance” of the software-as-a -service product. This is a two-year contract from March 17-March 16, 2024.
  • $1 million to Pyxis Management Consulting Group for “special advisor consulting services for DXP Project.” DXP is, generally, the modernization of the department’s core legacy systems during the next three to five years. This is a one-year contract from March 30-March 29, 2023.
  • $950,000, also to Pyxis, for consulting on mobile driver’s licenses. This is a one-year contract from March 4-March 3, 2023.
  • $500,000 to TalentEd for consulting services on implementing Identity Technologies. This is a six-month contract from March 8-Sept. 7, with two optional extensions of six months each.
