Australian Electoral Commission

(Question No. 1547)


Mr Conroy asked the Special Minister of State, in writing, on 15 September 2015:

In respect of the Australian Electoral Commission's $203,718.90 tender to Hammond Street Developments Pty Ltd for the 'Premises Inspection Tool' (CN3287231), (a) can he provide a description of the service, and (b) what is the purpose and benefit of this tool.


Mr Brough: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(a) I am advised by the Australian Electoral Commission that this service is a technical solution for conducting and managing the inspection of premises temporarily hired to run specific operations during an electoral event.

(b) I am advised by the AEC that the purpose of this tool is to provide a technological solution which improves the AEC's premises inspection process, and allows the easy access and analysis of premises information from a central data repository. The tool will allow the AEC to meet ANAO recommendations associated with the assessment and retention of data for polling and scrutiny premises, and additionally, to meet its previous commitment to the Disability Advisory Committee (DAC} around improving the publishing of polling place accessibility information on its public-facing website.
