PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gov. Gina Raimondo’s administration has agreed to a contract with a tech company to build a new computer system for the state’s Division of Motor Vehicles.

The agency announced plans to build a new computer system in 2006 and it was expected to be finished by 2010. But the company was sold to another company, which was subsequently sold to Hewlett-Packard.

WPRI-TV (https://bit.ly/1MM7GuF ) reports that the administration signed an amended contract on Tuesday with Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, which sells commercial computer systems, software and tech services. The system is expected to be operational by next September.

The project is expected to cost $16.5 million. HP has agreed to pay Rhode Island $3 million over the next year though, for its role in the problems with the system.
