RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) says their website is back up and running after a statewide technical outage that caused the website's outage. Several other government websites were affected.
DMV issued a statement that says:
The DMV closed its customer service centers early Saturday.
The outage is believed to be a result of a hardware failure at the Commonwealth Enterprise Solutions Center in Chester, according to Marcella Williamson, a spokesperson for the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA). The cause of the failure is unknown.
Northrop Grumman is providing the infrastructure under a 13-year contract with the state that is overseen by VITA.
According to Williamson, engineers and staff from VITA, Northrop Grumman and its subcontractors worked to fix the issue.
