PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The state of South Dakota is establishing a new center to recover money owed to state agencies and programs.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says that through the Obligation Recovery Center, state government will be able to more effectively engage those who owe debts to the state or to other residents. The center will collect debts such as unpaid taxes, university tuition or fees and court costs owed by criminal defendants.

Daugaard says the creation requires no upfront financial investment and it will help South Dakotans who are owed court-mandated restitution.

The Obligation Recovery Center was approved through the passage of a bill during the 2015 Legislative Session.

The state awarded the contract to CGI Technologies and Solutions Inc., which will handle customer service processes, expedited billing and self-service options.
