The state of South Dakota is hiring a private company to collect its debts. The company CGI Technologies opens what’s being called the Obligation Recovery Center on July 15.
The new state debt collect system under the Obligation Recovery Center seeks out money owed to state agencies. The establishment of the ORC was approved through the passage of House Bill 1228 during the 2015 Legislative Session. The ORC, run by CGI Technologies, collects debts such as unpaid taxes, university tuition or fees, and court costs.
