Thanks to an exciting collaboration between OSD’s Office of Vehicle Management (OVM) and the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV), Executive Agencies are able to get their state vehicles on the road more quickly!

This partnership will allow OVM, which oversees the Commonwealth’s Executive Branch Light Duty vehicle fleet, to conduct the fleet’s registration process internally. Following protocol and performance measures set by the RMV, OVM now has authority to issue registrations, plates, and decals, as well as manage renewals and plate cancellations.

What once was a weeklong process now is a 10-minute transaction! With the simplified and more efficient process, a fleet manager may visit OSD’s office, complete the required paperwork, and receive their registration on the spot. Previously, a fleet manager would ship the paperwork to OVM, which then would process the paperwork, physically deliver it to an RMV location, and wait several days for the transaction to be completed. With more than a thousand OVM fleet registration transactions processed each year, the time saved for all parties involved is significant.

OVM’s Business Specialist Ted Bunnell led the initiative, which launched on July 1. Bunnell says, “We wanted to make our services more customer-oriented – and the RMV did, too. Cutting out unnecessary steps in the process makes everyone’s experience better. The ease of doing business with OVM is dramatically increased, and that time savings truly is important for fleet managers.”

This mutually beneficial partnership is a fantastic example of innovation in government processes – one that results in time and money savings for the Commonwealth!
