The state of Vermont has awarded a three-year, $10 million contract to Saber Corp. of Portland, Ore., to modernize the IT systems that run its Department of Motor Vehicles.
The contract calls for Saber to automate Vermont's vehicle titling, registration, driver's license records management and payment functions. The state's mainframe-based system was implemented in the 1970s.
The new system will be built to give Vermont flexibility to respond to legislative changes and federal mandates, Saber said in a statement.
The Arizona State Retirement System also awarded a contract to Saber for an automated form-tracking system. The system will provide the state with a foundation to start converting 14 million pages of records stored on paper, microfilm and microfiche to an electronic format. The new system will allow for quicker access to documents, as well as simultaneous access by people in different areas. The value of the work was not released.
Integration with the state's existing Public Employee Retirement Information System was also part of the contract, Saber said.
