Last week, New York State announced that it plans to choose the highest bidder for a contract to produce the next generation of the state’s driver’s licenses.  We do not know all of the facts yet, but unless the product that this company is offering is far superior than that of its competitors, then this contract needs to be re-bid.
The state has to be looking to save money wherever possible, and contracts of this nature are no exception.  We’ll be watching as this situation unfolds.
