The proposer must make application as an individual, a nonprofit corporation, county clerk of courts, or a county auditor. The Registrar may appoint county auditors and eligible clerk of courts without using a competitive selection process. However, county auditors and eligible clerk of courts may also be required to participate in the competitive selection process. Partnerships, corporations, and other business associations are not eligible. Certain other persons are not eligible (such as employees of the State of Ohio) and are listed in the RFP.
No person will be awarded a contract because that person pays an assessment to or makes a contribution to any political party, the Governor or his campaign committee, or any candidate for public office. An affidavit must be signed by all proposers stating that he/she has not contributed more than $100.00 to any prohibited political officeholder (complete details are contained in the RFP).

Agency rent and site improvement is the responsibility of the Deputy Registrar. Some sites are under the control of the BMV, Ohio Department of Public Safety or a county (usually in conjunction with a clerk of courts title office) and are called BMV controlled-site locations. Minimal site improvements are involved with controlled site locations.
There are also deputy-provided sites where the successful proposer is required to provide, through lease or ownership, the site where the Deputy Registrar agency will be operated. In general, there are minimum site criteria including square footage, counter specifications, accessibility to individuals with disabilities and parking which must be addressed and are explained in the RFP.
Deputy Registrar contracts are subject to the provisions of Ohio Revised Code (R.C.) 125.081, which require the Registrar to set aside approximately 15 percent of the Deputy Registrar contracts for persons certified under Ohio Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) provisions.
Some locations are designated for one-stop shopping and are subject to additional requirements and may include subleasing space to a driver license examination station, a clerk of courts, or both.
The proposer must have verifiable funds in a financial institution account to cover site preparation costs, agency rental payments for three months and one month's personnel costs. The BMV supplies necessary computer terminals and inventory on a consignment basis.
