TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas is set to outsource vehicle title work for automobile dealers next year to save about $200,000.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports officials said Monday that the bulk of dealer transactions handled by the Kansas Department of Revenue’s office in Topeka would be managed by the Kansas Automobile Dealers Association.

General title services will continue to be available to individuals in county offices.

The trade organization set up a limited liability company to begin processing thousands of transfers in January. Lisa Kaspar, the state’s director of vehicles, says the five-year contract won’t result in layoffs at the revenue department.

The Kansas Automobile Dealers Association says a processing fee of no more than $10 will be woven into transaction costs assessed by dealers to consumers.
