This Week’s Highlight: Innovation in Elections

Our election processes are managed by the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) who’s main outcome is to “Maintain an impartial and independent electoral system for eligible voters through active electoral roll management, efficient delivery of polling services and targeted education and public awareness programs”. This process has remained unchanged for a very long time, and even in today’s electronic age, the process involves a huge amount of paper and people! Yet most would say the system works and remains free from the possibility of corruption.

This week however, we look at a Request for Information (RFI) from The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) to provide input on Electoral Polling Hardware, Logistics and Support Services. The AEC has been using an in-house solution of mobile computing, printing and related peripherals in a small number of key polling places, however this solution has reached end of life. So, through this RFI the AEC is seeking to:

•identify innovative ideas and approaches to a deployment and device management solution of portable devices and peripherals for election events

•identify market capability to deliver each of the key solution components or provide rationale why some components should be excluded

•understand market capacity for different deployment scenarios

•understand costs associated with different deployment scenarios.

The AEC intends to use Submissions to help inform the development of its requirements, business case and any future procurement strategy. A pre-recorded Industry Briefing will be released electronically through AusTender by the 9th July and the closing date for this RFI is 27th July 2020.

Also from the AEC is an opportunity for the Production and supply to the AEC of maps in paper and/or digital form Maps are required at several stages during a redistribution of federal electoral divisions. At the initial stages, these maps enable users to compare proposed names and boundaries to extant names and boundaries. At the final stage, maps present the new names and boundaries of electoral divisions. Maps are also required to display the results of federal electoral events, such as a general election, plebiscite or referendum. The closing date for this RFT is 24th July 2020.
