N.J. Enhanced Motor Vehicle
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.
