Obligation Recovery Center signs with a new vendor


PIERRE, S.D. – The Bureau of Administration has announced that the Obligation Recovery Center, established by HB1228 during the 2015 Legislative Session, will be changing vendors. The five-year agreement with CGI Technologies and Solutions, Inc. (CGI) is coming to an end. The State of South Dakota will transition to Reliant Capital Solutions for debt collection in November 2020.


“We appreciate the hard work CGI put into developing an effective debt collection program for the State of South Dakota,” remarked Bureau of Administration Commissioner Scott Bollinger. “They helped state agencies recover over $12,000,000 during the past four years.”


The contract with Reliant Capital Solutions will start on November 15, 2020. They will work with CGI over the next two months to notify debtors who are currently entered into payment plans so the transition can go as smoothly as possible.


Margie Brickner, CEO and founder of Reliant Capital Solutions stated, “We are honored to be selected by the State of South Dakota. Our philosophy is that the laws, respect and fairness, and individual circumstances guide our interactions with every debtor. We look forward to a successful partnership over the next several years.”
