One of the state’s best-known departments spent many millions on IT services this year, with its most expensive purchase coming during the third quarter.

From Jan. 1 through Dec. 15, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) made 97 purchases of IT services, with the costliest landing in the mid-seven figures. During that time period, DMV spent $18,035,900 on its five most expensive buys. Here, with rounding, is what that money paid for, based on data in the State Contract and Procurement Registration System:

  • $7.1 million to Deloitte for “Modernization of the DMV (Occupational Licensing) OL System.” As Techwire has reported, the DMV hired Deloitte to be the system integrator on the first phase of the Digital eXperience Platform (DXP) contract, which is based on the underlying Salesforce platform. This contract is an early step in DXP’s first phase. When the project is complete in three to five years, it will “update and replace software, hardware and programming languages for current legacy DMV core systems,” Director Steve Gordon told Techwire recently. DMV’s pact with Deloitte runs about two years, from Sept. 10-Sept. 13, 2023.
  • $3.5 million to CGI Technologies & Solutions for “IT MSA consulting for DMV’s legacy systems support.” This is another two-year contract, from May 20-May 19, 2023. It is likely a reference to master services agreement consulting, and it represents one of a series of initiatives DMV has undertaken since Gordon’s arrival in 2019 that are aimed at nurturing its existing systems while a new architecture is put in place via DXP.
  • $3 million to AgreeYa Solutions for “IT MSA Consulting.” The California High-Speed Rail Authority is among the company’s other clients in state government. This is a one-year contract, from June 28-June 27, 2022.
  • $2.5 million to Business Advantage Consulting for IT consulting services. Among the state clients listed on the company’s website are California Correctional Health Care Services and the California departments of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Education, Health Care Services, Public Health, Rehabilitation, Social Services and Transportation. This is a two-year contract, from June 1-May 31, 2023.
  • $2 million to Joltfed for UiPath software implementation. State and local entities have worked with UiPath since at least 2019, as Techwire has reported. This is a two-year contract as well, from June 29-June 28, 2023.
