Secretary of State Audits Division doesn’t have it on the radar
The Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles is still closed to walk-up customers, despite nearly every transaction-type system in Oregon being allowed to function with safety measures in place.
The Secretary of State's Audit Division is responsible for performing audits of State Agencies, including ODOT and the DMV, but we just elected Shemia Fagan to that office on the backs of massive financial support from public employee unions and a pledge not to do "gotcha" audits on State Agencies, which to me means that she isn't going to put pressure on them to perform. So, maybe it is a little bit of a left/right issue.
The Secretary of State's Audit Plan
doesn't list the DMV as an entity that will be looked at.
According to one Capitol insider who declined to be identified, "We just spent $90 million dollars on a software system for the DMV so they could perform better. One way or another, they need to do better."
According to their website,
DMV office visits are by appointment only.
- Some services MUST be done online or by mail.
- Even with an appointment, you may have to wait outside for some period of time before being helped. Please dress appropriately for all weather conditions.
The DMV has not released a public plan to return to normal services
