I. INTRODUCTION A. BACKGROUND The Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) of the New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department (TRD) issued RFP #90-333-00-00009, New Mexico Portal Project Solicitation, on January 16, 2009 for the sale of Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) data via qualified third-party entities. As a result of that procurement a contract was awarded on May 29, 2009 to NICUSA, Inc. The current contract is with New Mexico Interactive, Inc. (NMI). NMI currently supports 1,127 private sector businesses and 160 government entities with MVD providing support when needed. That contract was optionally renewed in 2010, 2011 and 2012 and, pending a contract award pursuant to RFP# 30-333-12-12463, the Motor Vehicle Division Driver and Vehicle System Reengineering Project, has been extended on an emergency basis through June 30, 2014. Until the Agency knew the terms of the System Reengineering Project and Contract, it could not

know with certainty what functionality would be required of the Agency’s data sales contractor. Even now it is not clear how much of the data sales and other functionality that is required by the current contract and by the terms of this RFP will be needed once the System Reengineering Project is fully implemented. It is the Agency’s expectation that fees charged for data will, in the short term at least, stay the same as detailed in Appendix C, Current Fee Schedule.

B. PURPOSE OF THIS REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS The Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) of the New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department (TRD) is soliciting proposals from qualified vendors with a history of successful design, development and deployment of enterprise solutions to maintain and improve the delivery of the Department’s information and services. The primary focus is on the sale of Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) data via qualified third-party entities, with the major goal of upholding required controls and safeguards to ensure compliance with state and federal privacy laws regarding motor vehicle data. A secondary focus is providing alternatives to the ways citizens, businesses and other government entities access MVD information and services. Many New Mexicans interact with MVD; and the efficiency and effectiveness with which MVD provides information and securely delivers its services has an influence on the perceptions New Mexicans have of their State government.

During that period, it is possible that the Agency will acquire the capability to, and will decide to, bring some of the functions anticipated by this RFP in-house, resulting in a reduction in scope of the contract anticipated by this RFP.

F. FINANCIAL CONSTRAINTS The Motor Vehicle Division Data Sales Project is to be a “self-funded” and “self-supporting” model that does not require appropriated funds or tax dollars for operations. The Agency may decide to limit or exempt charges to government agencies, schools, and nonprofit entities for access to information. For the purposes of this proposal, the Offeror should assume that government agencies, schools, and non-profit entities may access the MVD data at no charge. Offerors are requested to develop proposals for a “self-funded” model using “Vendor Transaction Fees” as the primary revenue sources. Such fees are only to be assessed on the actual users of the system services. The fees are to be the source of revenue and should provide the Offeror the ability to administer all aspects of providing and operating the system environment, pay a royalty to TRD, and provide an opportunity for the Offeror to realize a profit. The Offeror assumes responsibility for all financial processing costs for credit, debit cards and e-checks and takes responsibility for any “failure to pay” risks and consequences.

Offerors may also propose other revenue-generating alternatives that have been effective in supporting similar enterprise operations in other states.

The contents of this RFP, as revised and/or supplemented, and the successful Offeror’s proposal will be incorporated into and become part of any resultant contract. The Agency discourages exceptions from the contract terms and conditions as set forth in the RFP Sample Contract. Such exceptions may cause a proposal to be rejected as nonresponsive when, in the sole judgment of the Agency (and its evaluation team), the proposal appears to be conditioned on the exception, or correction of what is deemed to be a deficiency, or an unacceptable exception is proposed which would require a substantial proposal rewrite to correct. Should an Offeror object to any of the terms and conditions as set forth in the RFP Sample Contract (APPENDIX C) strongly enough to propose alternate terms and conditions in spite of the above, the Offeror must propose specific alternative language. The Agency may or may not accept the alternative language. General references to the Offeror’s terms and conditions or attempts at complete substitutions of the Sample Contract are not acceptable to the Agency and will result in disqualification of the Offeror’s proposal. Offerors must provide a brief discussion of the purpose and impact, if any, of each proposed change followed by the specific proposed alternate wording.

16.

Offeror’s Terms and Conditions Offerors must submit a complete set of any additional terms and conditions, with the proposal, that they expect to have included in a contract negotiated with the agency.

17.

Contract Deviations Any additional terms and conditions that may be the subject of negotiation will be discussed only between the Agency and the selected Offeror and shall not be deemed an opportunity to amend the Offeror’s proposal.

Right to Waive Minor Irregularities The Evaluation Committee reserves the right to waive minor irregularities. The Evaluation Committee also reserves the right to waive mandatory requirements provided that all of the otherwise responsive proposals fail to meet the same mandatory requirements and/or doing so does not, otherwise, materially affect the procurement. This right is at the sole discretion of the Evaluation Committee. 20.

Changes in Contractor Representatives The agency reserves the right to require a change in contractor representatives if the assigned representatives are not, in the opinion of the Agency, meeting its needs adequately.

IV. REQUIREMENTS – GENERAL INFORMATION Unless otherwise specified, Offerors must respond in the form of a thorough narrative to each mandatory requirement and to each desirable item that the Offeror proposes to provide. The narratives, along with required supporting materials, will be evaluated and awarded points accordingly.

A. MANDATORY, MANDATORY SCORED, AND DESIRABLE REQUIREMENTS The maximum possible functionality, including mandatory, mandatory scored and desirable specifications, should be included by the Offeror. Mandatory and Mandatory Scored functionality must be provided as specified or the proposal will be rejected. The basic difference between “Mandatory” and “Mandatory Scored” is:  Offeror shall respond to each Mandatory specification with a statement of concurrence.

For each desirable specification, the Offeror must indicate whether it can: a) fully meet the requirement; b) partially meet the requirement (with explanation of why and what Offeror is specifically prepared to do); or c) not meet the requirement. Points will be awarded based on the extent to which the Offeror is able to provide maximum functionality, combining mandatory, mandatory scored and desirable specifications Prior to award of a contract, the State must be assured the selected Offeror, and any Subcontractors, have the commitment and resources necessary to successfully perform under the contract. This includes, but is not limited to:  Sufficient personnel available for this project possessing the required skills;  Financial resources sufficient to complete performance under the contract;  Equipment and hardware of appropriate type and in sufficient quantity;  Competence in the changing state and federal mandates related to the project;  Proven track record of successful experience in similar endeavors.

Background Information a.

Agency description: The Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) of the New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department (TRD) is a New Mexico state government agency charged with administering the State of New Mexico’s vehicle and driver licensing laws in a manner warranting the highest degree of public confidence. The Taxation and Revenue Department was created by the Taxation and Revenue Department Act (Chapter 9, Article 11 NMSA 1978) for the purpose of establishing a single, unified department to administer all laws and exercise all functions charged to the department relating to taxation, revenue and vehicles. The constituencies of the department include other State agencies, cities and counties of New Mexico, taxpayers (both private and business), and legislators. For FY08, TRD processed approximately $8 billion in revenues from the general public. This includes revenues received from the various tax programs administered by the Department, as well as fees received from the Motor Vehicle Division. Revenues received are deposited with the State Treasurer and distributed to the State General Fund and other recipients, such as the State Road Fund and local governments, as designated by law. The Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) authority is found in the Motor Vehicle Code (Chapter 66, NMSA 1978).
