Interested Bidders Will Have Until Nov. 22 to Submit Proposals to Manage Ste. Genevieve License Office
JEFFERSON CITY - Interested groups or individuals will have until Tuesday, Nov. 22, to bid to operate the Ste. Genevieve License Office.
Earlier this week, the Office of Administration issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) asking for bids to manage the office. The ability for people or groups to bid to run local license offices is part of Gov. Jay Nixon's reformed competitive process that requires the Missouri Department of Revenue to select office agents that present the best proposals for customer service and financial efficiency.
Joe Rozier, the current agent, will operate the office until a new agent is selected. The office is located at 207 Plaza Dr. in Ste. Genevieve.
Potential bidders can propose to keep the office at the current site or submit another location in Ste. Genevieve. A tour of the current license office will be conducted from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9, for potential bidders who wish to view the office layout.
During Fiscal Year 2011 (July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011), the Ste. Genevieve office conducted 26,064 transactions and generated $88,111 in agent processing fees.
Common transactions that take place at local license offices include renewing or applying for a driver license, renewing or applying for registration on motor vehicles, boats and outboard motors, and applying for titles and paying sales taxes on these units.
A copy of the RFP that bidders will use to develop their bids can be viewed at https://www.moolb.mo.gov/. To review an RFP, select "Guest" on the home page, click on "Open Bids By Agency," then scroll through the list of bids until the appropriate bid is located. (The RFP number for the Ste. Genevieve office is B3Z12073.)
