Tracking the Spend: DMV Spent $4M+ on Top IT Buys in September

The California Department of Motor Vehicles made fewer than a dozen purchases of IT services in September. Its five costliest included support for online insurance verification and for the Digital eXperience Platform, a large-scale modernization.

The state motor vehicles department made nine purchases of IT services from Sept. 1-Sept. 30 and spent more than $4 million on the top five.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) spent $4,307,939.50 on its five most expensive such buys, including two multiyear contracts — low numbers overall but a marked rise from just four such purchases from Sept. 1-Sept. 30, 2022, at a cost of $1,623,298.98.

With rounding, here are the DMV’s five costliest purchases of IT services in September, based on data in the State Contracting and Procurement Registration System:
  • $2.3 million to Ravacons LLC for professional services: assisting with Digital eXperience Platform (DxP) project data link support. That includes planning, project management, architecture, data modeling, conversion, migration and analysis and proofs of concept. DxP is DMV’s ongoing, large-scale modernization effort. This is a one-year contract from Sept. 29-Sept. 28, 2024.
  • $998,000 to Pasco Inc. for maintenance and support for its online insurance verification tool, as part of the Vehicle Insurance Program. This is a two-year pact, from Sept. 15-Sept. 14, 2025.
  • $370,000 to HF Tech Services Inc. to configure the Ceridian Dayforce Workforce Management Solution. This is a one-year contract from Sept. 22-Sept. 21, 2024.
