Ops Memo 2014-39: External Agency Data: Registry of Motor Vehicles - New BEACON Functionality


In an ongoing effort to enhance program integrity, DTA continues to expand real time online data matches provided by external sources. In July 2013, DTA obtained expanded access to the MassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) database. This access provides information on state issued driver’s licenses, identification cards (Massachusetts IDs and Massachusetts Liquor IDs), vehicle registration and title information for applicants and clients (hereafter referred to as clients). DTA staff can also now view client picture images from RMV for all DTA programs. As a result of the Office of the Inspector General Bureau of Program Integrity’s audit, changes have been made to BEACON regarding match functionality.

Purpose of Memo
The previous Operations Memo that covered some of these topics was Operations Memo 2014-15 which is now being obsoleted. This Operations Memo is being reissued  to document amended BEACON functionality for dispositioning RMV matches, effective with BEACON Build 46.3, scheduled for June 16, 2014. Functionality changes can be found on pages 4 and 5 under “Dispositioning the Vehicles Page and the RMV Matched Data” and “Edits.”

Obsolete Memo
Operations Memo 2014-15: External Agency Data: Registry of Motor Vehicles is now obsolete.
