  1. Gateway Vehicle Inspection Program Update Leanne Tippett Mosby July 5, 2007

  2. Background • Current program authorized by statute in 1994 to replace decentralized BAR90 program. Numerous delays. Began operation in 2000. • Contract expires September 1, 2007. • SIP was due June 2007. • 1-hour maintenance plan flexibility.

  3. Why is the program changing? • Very unpopular with large number of citizens and legislators. • Primary complaint: inconvenience of having to make 2 stops for safety and emissions. • OBD II much easier to oversee in a decentralized scenario than idle testing. • Shrinking population of 95 & older.

  4. Timeline • Summer/Fall 2005 conducted I/M Summit. • Fall/Winter 2005 assisted in crafting legislation. • Legislative Session 2006 - Senate Bill 583. • Summer/Fall 2006 - began rulemaking, developed RFP. • May 30, 2007 - contract awarded to SysTech International.

  5. SysTech International • Will provide database management and equipment for testing. • Has contracts in CT, NY (City Taxi and Limousine Commission), OR, RI, TN (Nashville and Memphis), UT (Salt Lake County) and WA. • Contract effective from May 29 until Sept. 1, 2011. Options for one one-year or one two-year extension.

  6. GCAP Centralized network. Rapid Screen. Covers rolling 25 MY gasoline-powered. No diesels. 2 newest MY exempt. OBD II, I/M 240, idle. Franklin Co. idle testing. GVIP Decentralized. No remote sensing pgm. Covers 96 & newer gasoline. 97 & newer diesel. 4 newest MY exempt.** OBD II only. Uniform throughout area. (**unless over 40K miles at 2 year safety inspection. Also exempt if driven <12K/2 years.) GCAP vs. GVIP

  7. Costs • For shops: $2,495 for basic equipment, $3.45 per test transaction fee paid to SysTech. $2.50 to MDNR for oversight. $100 for license. • For motorists: Cost of test did not increase --$24. • Waivers: $450 for most motorists, $400 (EPA approved parts) for self-repairers, $200 for those on government assistance.

  8. Fraud Prevention • Real time exchange of inspection data with Department of Revenue allows paperless registration verification • Comprehensive database will provide the state with accurate information about inspection and repair patterns • Fraud-resistant inspection equipment and VID features will give state the information necessary to prevent fraudulent inspections • Inspectors will use a fingerprint scanner to begin vehicle inspection process, allowing state to accurately identify inspectors

  9. Recent and Imminent Activities • June 2007: SysTech, MDNR, MSHP held series of 3 seminars to introduce program to repair shops. Over 700 attendees! • Several hundred shops have signed up. • Training and equipment deployment will take place in August. • New program start date: September 4 (after Labor Day.)

  10. Public Information Campaign • Work performed by in house staff. • Website for motorists and repair shops: www.gatewayvip.com. • Public service announcements available. • Still to come -- media advertisements getting the word out to motorists about the changes.
