  • Dealer Inputs Transaction data into their ADD, TitleTec or CVR system.
  • Dealer prints Form 4040 and puts all documents together for each transaction.
  • Dealer prints summary page for report and bundles all transactions for that summary page together.
  • OATA receives bundled work and sorts it into the proper report number. (See today’s report we are working on here.)
  • OATA grades transactions and suspends any transactions which are incomplete. (These transactions are then sent back to the dealer with comments about the specific issue.)
  • OATA closes and finalizes the report, processes payment to DHSMV, and mails paperwork to state for scanning.
Generally, OATA will close a report within 3-5 business days of the report date.

A suspended transaction means that the transaction is still valid, but there is an issue with the paperwork.

Common issues include:
1. Paperwork didn’t arrive by the time we closed the report.
2. Missing signatures.
3. Lienholder information missing

A VOIDED transaction means that the transaction has been deleted out of the system and the paperwork as well as payment has been returned to the dealer.

Common reasons include:
1. Cancelled at request of the dealer.
