New York was one of five states selected to receive funding through the I-95 Corridor Coalition to develop electronic credentialing systems that would provide a more cost-effective method for commercial vehicle registration and data exchange between states, carriers, and third-party clearinghouses. Four of the states originally selected to participate in the evaluation were unable to complete the program due to the lack of available technical resources. New York developed an Internet-based electronic credentialing system, One-Stop-Credentialing and Registration (OSCAR), as a proof-of-concept demonstration. OSCAR provides the following functions:
- Credential application forms accessible via the Internet
- International Registration Plan (IRP) credentialing
- International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) credentialing
- Highway User Tax (HUT) credentialing
- Single State Registration System (SSRS) credentialing
The total project cost was $577,910. The table below provides the project components and corresponding costs.
