BM Associates and HHS Technology Group LLC™ (HTG), announced today that the State of California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) has awarded a contract to modernize the state’s Delinquent Vehicle Registration (DVR) system and related applications. Once implemented, the enhanced system will encompass all necessary functionality for effective collections, creating the new “DVR2” system.
The State of California FTB has an important responsibility to collect delinquent vehicle registration fees through its Vehicle Registration Collection (VRC) Program to help fund important social services for Californians. As part of that duty, the FTB administers the DVR system to manage monetary penalties and collections associated with vehicles whose registration has not been paid.
To streamline the collections process, the FTB requires an updated, more cost-effective and efficient system built on agile techniques within a flexible, adaptable, and scalable cloud environment.
Both BM Associates and HTG have accrued significant experience partnering with the State of California to deliver purpose-built technologies and solutions to optimize operations and reduce costs. As a Red Hat Alliance Partner, HHS Technology Group leverages its industry leading technologies to deliver state-of-the-art, cloud-based solutions and services.
For more than 20 years, BM Associates has been providing services to multiple public sector and California agencies, including the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the Department of Developmental Services and the California Department of Water Resources.
Separately, HTG recently entered into a long-term, multi-year contract with the state of California’s Child Welfare Digital Services (CWDS) to support the continued delivery of its CARES-Live child welfare case management system. In other engagements, HTG provided core software development services to CWDS using the agile SDLC, DevOps services and DBA services.
“Like most enterprises, state agencies are increasingly looking to accomplish a digital transformation that enables them to become more agile and flexible,” said Senthil Muniappan, Chief Executive Officer, BM Associates. “Along with HTG, we are proud to partner with the State of California FTB to provide new tools and applications that will improve the performance of the DVR system.”
“We are pleased to be selected with BM Associates and Red Hat to deliver another mission-critical application to improve compatibility, devise supportive architectures, and enhance innovative software-defined storage designs for the State of California,” said Brett Furst, President, HTG. “Securing this engagement with the Franchise Tax Board adds to HTG’s growing footprint in California.”
