In Maryland, electronic screening and credentialing systems deployed as part of the CVISN program had an overall estimated benefit-to-cost ratio ranging from 3.28 to 4.68.
This report summaries a study on the benefits and costs of CVISN deployed in the state of Maryland. It attempts to answer what the net benefits are for the state for several components of the CVISN program for a ten year life span and different discount rates. For a 7 percent discount rate the benefit to cost ratio ranges from a low of 3.28 to a high of 4.68 for the overall program in Maryland. Also included in the report are estimated ranges of benefit cost ratios for Credential Processing (1.98 to 2.92 at 7 percent discount rate), Safety and Enforcement (4.15 to 5.86 at 7 percent discount rate), State Agencies (1.45 to 1.61 at 7 percent), and Motor Carriers (6.67 to 10.41 at 7 percent).
