CGI gets US$40m contract to modernize California voting system

IT services provider CGI Group has won the US$38.75m contract to implement the State of California’s new centralized statewide voter registration database system, VoteCal, which will provide a single official source of voter registration information.

 

VoteCal will connect to multiple state agencies and all 58 county election official offices to improve efficiency of the voter registration process. Currently, information about new and existing registered voters is separately maintained in county election management systems with the current statewide voter registration database (CalVoter) storing a copy of each county’s voter registration data and refreshing that data based on daily updates.

 

Josetta Bull, VP at CGI and account executive for the State of California account, said, “We bring expertise in large-scale data integration as well as extensive experience integrating information management systems across California.”

 

VoteCal will include a new public website for people to register online, verify their registration, and look up provisional ballot and vote-by-mail ballot status.

 

US federal government mandates states implement centralized voter registration systems. California's existing legacy system is compliant with this mandate. CGI will replace it, however, with a modern and robust technical foundation and deliver added functionality, making compliance simpler and more efficient.

 

VoteCal will automate functions currently performed manually, support uniform application of voter laws and establish uniform voter registration processes across the state.

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?

  • The CFD Myth – Why There Are No Real-Time Computational Fluid Dynamics?

    Wed, 20 May 2015 14:00:00

    The rise of processing power and steady development of supercomputers have allowed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to grow out of all recognition. But how has this affected the Data Center market – particularly in respect to cooling systems? The ideal DCIM system offers CFD capability as part of its core solution (rather than as an external application), fed by real-time monitoring information to allow for continuous improvements and validation of your cooling strategy and air handling choices. Join DCIM expert Philippe Heim and leading heat transfer authority Remi Duquette for this free webinar, as they discuss: •Benefits of a single data model for asset management •Challenges of real-time monitoring •Some of the issues in CFD simulation, and possible solutions •How CFD can have a direct, positive impact on your bottom line Note: All attendees will have access to a free copy of the latest Siemens White Paper: "Using CFD for Optimal Thermal Management and Cooling Design in Data Centers".
