State Awards E-Check Contract for New Decentralized Program
The State of Ohio has awarded the next E-Check contract to Envirotest Systems. The program will be changing to a decentralized program, which is required by H.B. 153.
“This contract will save Ohioans more than $2 million per year, while providing motorists with more testing options,” said Ohio EPA Director Scott J. Nally.
The new program will provide motorists with multiple choices so motorists can decide if they want to take their cars to one of 53 independent repair/test stations, get it tested at one of the 23 current testing-only stations, or conduct their own OBD test at one of 16 free-standing kiosks.
The contract will begin on June 4, 2012, and run through June 30, 2015, with the possibility of two one-year extensions.
