Department of Motor Vehicles

Contract with the Motorcycle Association of New York State, Inc.

The contractor oversees a statewide training program for motorcycle operators and instructors. The program, which is administered by the Department of Motor Vehicles, is funded by fees associated with the registration of motorcycles and the issuance or renewal of motorcycle operator licenses. We determined that a refund of $205,643 was due the State from the $1.7 million paid to the contractor during our 29-month audit period, mainly because fees collected by the contractor were not used to offset contract costs and some of the costs claimed by the contractor were not adequately documented. We also determined that certain improvements were needed in the contractor’s oversight of the statewide training program, and recommended that the contractor be monitored more closely by the Department.
