AMS wins $156 million NY outsourcing deal

American Management Systems Inc. won a seven-year, $156 million contract from New York City Department of Finance to operate a parking violation system.

Under the contract, AMS of Fairfax, Va., will manage and remotely host the Summons Tracking and Accounts Receivable System, known as STARS. In addition, AMS also will support the integration and maintenance of other New York City systems.

The goal of the project is to support the complex business processes necessary to identify and collect financial obligations that will enhance the working environment of the city's employees, according to the company.

The project will be supported by AMS personnel in New York and Fairfax, Va., who will perform software design, development and maintenance to both STARS and other municipal systems.

In addition, all operational tasks related to STARS will be managed by AMS, including connecting with a data entry vendor to ensure timely updating of all ticket information, working with the bank responsible for lockbox transactions to ensure daily payment updates and coordinating with the departments of motor vehicles in the 50 states and the District of Columbia for timely vehicle owner identifications.

The New York City Department of Finance processes nearly 9 million parking tickets annually. Tickets are issued by employees of 14 different city agencies and generate more than $375 million in revenue each year.

AMS has more than 6,500 employees and annual revenue of $1.1 billion.
