Equipment Package: Credentials and Taxes Administration

Description: This equipment package provides administrative capabilities for commercial vehicle operations including database management and administrator-to-roadside and administrator-to-administrator interfaces. For example, this equipment package would manage the electronic credentials database for a state, perform reconciliation of mileage and fuel taxes (possibly post trip), and interface with roadsides performing credential checks. This equipment package communicates with similar packages in other CVAS locations to exchange credentials database information. Example locations would be state agency or regional offices that are involved with commercial vehicle operations. This equipment package also exchanges hazmat route restrictions information, and provides a clearinghouse for this information that then can share the information with Map Update Providers, Fleet and Freight Management subsystems and Information Service Providers.
