Nevada DMV Ends Contract with Tech Mahindra

System Modernization project was approved to upgrade 20-year old DMV computer systems

Carson City— Today the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles announced the end to the contract with Tech Mahindra, the contractor hired in April 2016 to upgrade the outdated DMV computer system.

“Due to a number of varying concerns, we have determined it is best to part ways,” said DMV Director Terri Albertson. “We will continue to dedicate ourselves to a modernization project. Without this upgrade, our ability to serve Nevadans will always be limited.”

The contract was solicited after lawmakers approved a $114 million system upgrade during the 2015 Legislative Session, including costs for hardware as well as software development. The funding was largely apportioned by assessing a $1 “technology fee” on all DMV transactions. Tech Mahindra was selected after a formal procurement process as mandated by state law.

“There are a lot of details still being worked out, but our goal to improve service delivery remains the same.” Director Albertson stressed the importance of moving forward, “We will spend the next few days and weeks winding up affairs and assessing our options for the future.”
