The Missouri Department of Revenue oversees 182 license offices which are each operated by independent agencies. 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, a Women Business Enterprise or a Missouri Service-Disabled veteran Enterprise.
