Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles Business Case for Vehicle Title Registration System
The DMV is statutorily charged with ensuring motor vehicles are properly titled and registered. The current Vehicle Title Registration System (VTR) was developed in the 1990s and is used in all Nebraska counties and the state office. It is the information system used to manage, calculate taxes, and track vehicle title registrations at the point of contact with Nebraska residents. It serves as an information source for dealers, county officials, and other state agencies including Game and Parks, Revenue, Roads, and State Patrol. But, the current VTR lacks features that are desired by its multiple stakeholders. The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) worked with the Public Policy Center to develop a Business Case for replacing the existing Vehicle Title Registration System. It provided a succinct assessment of the current and a possible future system as well as recommended next steps. This Business Case made it possible to put together LB 918 which authorized a funding source for a new VTR system, then amended into LB 977, and passed.
