Colorado’s Driver and Vehicle Services Modernization


The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles administers driver and motor vehicle services including licensing, vehicle titling, and registration. To achieve its business, operational, and technical goals, the department is replacing its legacy driver’s license, vehicle services, and supporting systems with an integrated Driver License, Record, Identification and Vehicle Enterprise Solution (DRIVES).


DOR selected CSG to provide periodic IV&V assessments with monthly status reports to objectively identify risks and issues and provide recommendations for the enterprise solution. The CSG IV&V team developed a comprehensive IV&V Project Management Plan and utilized TeamCSG℠ IV&V tools and targeted performance metrics to analyze the DRIVES project management, progress, resources, budget, schedules, work flow, and reporting. The IV&V team also reviewed project deliverables and technical components including software documentation, software architecture, application software, and operating platform performance characteristics.

Together, DOR and CSG are working to ensure the successful implementation of an enterprise system that brings updated technology to the department and provides increased safety and more efficient services to Coloradans.

Oregon DMV Service Transformation Program


The Oregon Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division (DMV) plays a crucial role in driver safety, protection of financial ownership interests in vehicles, and collection of revenue to finance Oregon's transportation system. In an effort to increase DMV’s operational efficiency, the State launched the Service Transformation Program (STP), a multi-year effort consisting of a portfolio of projects aimed to improve DMV business processes, enhance service capabilities, replace aging computer systems, and enable DMV to become more flexible and timely in meeting customer expectations and legislative mandates.


Oregon selected CSG to provide independent Quality Assurance services throughout the full project life cycle. CSG is applying our proven QA by CSG℠ methodologies and tools and comprehensive QA services, including quality management planning, quality control, quality assurance, and risk assessment, to provide clear visibility across the project portfolio and maximize the quality and impact of the Service Transportation Program.

Together, CSG and Oregon DMV are advancing the State’s mission to provide a safe, efficient transportation system that supports economic opportunity and thriving communities for Oregonians.

New Mexico Driver and Vehicle Program Modernization

Santa Fe
Sante Fe

The New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) coordinates, administers, and enforces the licensing and registration process for commercial and non-commercial drivers and vehicles. Like many other states, MVD is faced with the challenge of an aging driver and vehicle system, covering more than 1.4 million drivers and over 1.6 million vehicles. In order to enhance motor vehicle operations and provide a customer-centric solution for the people they serve, MVD has launched a major initiative to modernize their legacy driver and vehicle system.


New Mexico engaged CSG to provide proactive Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V) services throughout the design, development, and implementation of their Driver and Vehicle System Reengineering Project. Our services span all aspects of the modernization effort, including project management, governance, and technical architecture and design. CSG conducts assessments in real-time throughout the project life cycle to proactively identify risks and issues, and provide risk mitigation strategies and recommendations. Our IV&V team focuses on assuring the success of the overall implementation and meeting the State’s key objectives.

New Mexico is pursuing a vision to improve the lives of New Mexicans by providing quality products and services to enhance safe and efficient motor vehicle operations. CSG is there to help them achieve that goal.

Colorado License and ID Card Modernization


The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) provides identification, driver, and vehicle services to the State’s more than 3 million licensed drivers. In order to provide their citizens with the highest level of services, the DMV developed a strategic approach for engaging Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) services to help assure the successful modernization of their enterprise license and ID card system.


DMV selected CSG to provide IV&V services and assist the State in conforming to industry best practices and IEEE standards throughout the program modernization effort. CSG is reviewing and analyzing the third party vendor’s implementation plan, data management plan, risk management processes, security plans, interface designs, user acceptance testing, and deployment plans. Following the review and analysis of each area, CSG provides a summary report to DMV to guide them through industry best practices and the delivery of a successful implementation.

CSG is also assessing system functionality, conducting an analysis of past project performance, assessing risks and issues, and providing recommendations for improvement to assure the management and technical aspects of projects meet the State’s objectives.

Colorado DMV is committed to improving the motor vehicle services for the people who depend on it. CSG is here to assure the State meets its modernization goals.

Michigan Driver and Motor Vehicle Modernization


The Michigan Department of State (MDOS) has implemented restricted license sanctions for individuals convicted of driving under the influence that require the installation of a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID). The BAIID prevents a vehicle’s engine from starting until the driver passes an on-board breath-alcohol test. Data captured through the BAIID is tracked and analyzed to monitor and enforce the licensing restrictions. In order to provide timely and efficient analysis of this information, MDOS has launched an initiative to modernize driver and motor vehicle licensing systems.

Project Planning and Support by CSG

CSG is providing the MDOS support with capturing the current business processes and also with the documenting of the To-Be business processes. CSG is also assisting the Department with developing and documenting the training materials for the Ignition Interlock System.

MDOS is committed to assuring the safety of people traveling the roads of Michigan. CSG is helping them accomplish their mission.

Illinois Tollway Project Management and Oversight Services


The Illinois Tollway is a user-fee system that receives no state or federal funds for maintenance and operations of 294 miles of interstate tollways in 12 counties in Northern Illinois. In order to ensure the highest level of service to its customers, the Tollway selected CSG to provide ongoing PMO services for a wide range of enterprise system modernization efforts to improve efficiency and effectiveness.


CSG is providing project management and planning services for the ongoing maintenance and support of Tollway’s Capital Program Reporting System. CSG is assessing current business processes; identifying, tracking, and resolving risks; communicating project status, issues, and changes; and managing the upgrade activities for the new technology.
