It is expected that small businesses will be among those entities who choose to become contractors under the APPS program. The costs of obtaining electronic access to DMV databases to provide title and registration services can be more than offset by the fees which contractors are permitted to charge for title and registration processing. The Department believes that the decision of a business to seek a contract with the DMV under s. 341.21
, Stats., will be based on estimated demand for the services whether the business is large or small. The requirement of a bond has been waived for motor vehicle dealers and financial institutions which are expected to make up the majority of contractors under the program. After considering the methods mentioned in s. 227.114 (2)
, Stats., the Department concluded that the same program standards must apply to all contractors regardless of size. To incorporate any of the methods suggested in s. 227.114 (2)
, Stats., would be contrary to the objectives of s. 341.21
, Stats. The Department believes that many small businesses will view the APPS program as a desirable opportunity to enhance their primary business activities by offering a related customer service which will be convenient and beneficial to both the contractor and its customers.
