The State of Missouri Office of Administration plans to seek bids again for a Missouri Department of Revenue license office in Houston.

The bid was earlier awarded to the Houston Area Chamber of Commerce, but the state terminated the contract effective April 1. No reason was given. The Houston License Office bid was awarded to the chamber on Dec. 20, 2021, with a targeted opening date of February 2022.

People familiar with the procedure said the new bid process means anyone will be able to submit a new proposal, including the chamber. As of Friday, the Office of Administration had not posted the opening on a state website,

A representative of the Missouri Department of Revenue said Monday the bid is expected to be posted no later than the end of next week.

  1. The whole license branch system is a political RAT. Very difficult to do business with. Needs be completely reformed and revamped towards customer service. Half of clerks don’t know their stuff. Never before in my life did I understand the jokes about fear and trepidation about dealing with motor vehicle department. I’ve lived in 7 states and Missouri’s vehicle licensing and taxing system is by far the worst.
