Subject: Resolution Authorizing a Memorandum of Understanding for the Drivers License and/or Motor Vehicle
Record Data Exchange between Miami-Dade County and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached Memorandum of Understanding between the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, and Miami-Dade County, on behalf of the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department, authorizing a data exchange from the Driver and Vehicle Information Database. This data exchange will provide the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department with vital information to confirm compliance with Florida Statute 401.281. The Memorandum of Understanding is effective upon execution and lasts for a period of three years. There are no costs associated with this data exchange.

Scope
This Memorandum of Understanding is countywide.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
There is no fiscal impact with this Memorandum of Understanding.

Track Record/Monitor
The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department’s Emergency Medical Services Division Chief, John Krumenacker, will monitor this Agreement.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
Effective July 2011, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles required all cities and county government agencies to have a Memorandum of Understanding to obtain driver’s license information using an existing Network Provider Service. Title XXIX, Section 401.281 of the Florida Statutes requires licensed emergency medical services providers such as Miami-Dade Fire Rescue to ensure that each of its vehicles is driven by only qualified personnel. To do this, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue must obtain a driver history for each of the department’s sworn personnel every two years. These transcripts are reviewed by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Emergency Medical Services Division and every two years are audited by the State of Florida Bureau of Emergency Medical Services. The most recent audit was conducted in the fall of 2012 and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue expects to be audited again in late 2014. The Memorandum of Understanding will provide a data exchange to the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department for a period of three years.
