Following a competitive tender process, Idox Elections has been awarded a contract with North Lanarkshire Council, where it will support the delivery of an efficient, transparent and reliable elections service until 2020.
The partnership sees Idox replace incumbent supplier Democracy Counts in the provision of a comprehensive Electoral Management System (EMS). The contract includes the production and delivery of all print requirements for every election within the contract period, including poll cards, ballot books and postal packs for an electorate of approximately 255,000. Idox will also provide the Council’s Postal Managed Service, allowing North Lanarkshire to scan and verify 100% of returned postal votes and associated postal vote statements.
The contract builds on Idox’s recent e-count success in Scotland and coincides with a similar electoral services contract win in Tayside, due to commence in January 2018.
The Tayside Procurement Consortium – on behalf of Angus, Dundee City and Perth & Kinross Councils – has selected Idox to fulfil all print requirements, as well as deliver the Postal Voting Management Solution (PVMS) for each Council.
