We thought you’d like to see this message from the OReGO project team, announcing the companies that were selected to provide services to OReGO participants. The companies still have to be certified by ODOT – their technology tested and their business practices examined – before they become official OReGO account managers. But we’re excited to tell you who you might be working with when you sign up July 1!
ODOT qualifies vendors to help build and manage Oregon’s Road Usage Charge Program
Oregon’s Road Usage Charge Program has qualified three companies to help build and support Oregon’s mileage charge collection system: Sanef, Verizon and Azuga. The companies are now working on becoming certified. And once they do that, they will do an end-to-end testing of their systems and how they interface with ODOT’s systems. (That phase is called operational trial.) This will allow them to begin providing services to the program’s volunteer motorists beginning July 1, 2015.
How Will the System Work?
First, volunteers will choose options for participating in the program, including who will manage their mileage reporting and payment/credit. ODOT has contracted with Azuga, Sanef and Verizon to manage accounts, calculate charges plus any credits due, and submit charges to the Oregon Treasury. ODOT will audit account managers and verify that all charges owed are paid.
The road usage charge system will automatically collect mileage data from vehicles. A mileage reporting device selected by the motorist will interface with the vehicle and be paired with software to send mileage totals to the chosen account manager. The on-board mileage reporting device may be either “basic” (does not use location-determination technology) or “advanced” (uses location-determination technology). GPS is one type of location-determination technology and that is the type that several of the account managers will use.
