N.J. Enhanced Motor Vehicle
Inspection Contract

The Commission conducted a comprehensive investigation of the events and circumstances leading to privatization of motor vehicle inspection services in New Jersey and found a process thoroughly undermined by mismanagement and political manipulation.  Preliminary findings were aired in sworn testimony during two days of public hearings in July. A final report, incorporating the public record as well as significant additional information gathered subsequent to the hearings, was issued in March 2002. This document formed the basis for a series of recommendations to shield the state’s procurement process from improper influence, to reform the procedures by which public contracts are designed and awarded and to afford greater control over, and disclosure of, efforts by lobbyists and vendors to influence the process.
