Department of Revenue (DOR) officials underwent more grilling Wednesday from a Missouri Senate committee over the agency’s practice of scanning source documents for driver’s license applications, conceal-carry weapon endorsements, and other license applications.
The Missouri Senate has given first-round approval to legislation that would prohibit the Department of Revenue (DOR) from scanning and storing source documents for driver’s license, conceal-carry, and other applications.
He told reporters the purpose of the audits was to see if the process of awarding bids to run the offices has been de-politicized. One of the audits turned up at least one case of a not-for-profit group using a subcontractor to run 10 license fee offices, which Schweich says is against regulations.
Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich is looking into the local offices that issue Missouri vehicle and driver's licenses.
Schweich said Monday his audit will examine the Department of Revenue's process for awarding contracts to run the offices. He also plans to review the operating procedures of some of the 183 license offices.
