Documents relating to proposed limited electronic voting option

Andrew made this Freedom of Information request to ACT Electoral Commission

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Andrew to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Andrew

Delivered

Dear ACT Electoral Commission,

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2016, I apply for access to documents held by the Commission in relation to its proposal for a "limited electronic voting option" as referred to in the Commission's report to the Legislative Assembly of 11 September 2019.

The specific documents I request are:

- Election Management System Modernisation Project RFT 31093.110 and contract 31093.210

- Documents used in the preparation of the Commission's report to the Assembly of 11 September 2019

- Documents (including internal and external correspondence) regarding the security and verifiability requirements of the limited electronic voting option

- Minutes of 2018-2020 meetings of the Electoral Commission, the ICT Steering Committee, and any other relevant internal committee or working group, to the extent that they discuss the limited electronic voting option

I ask that the documents be supplied to me in electronic form by reply email to this address.

Disclosure of the information requested is in the public interest due to:

- the general public interest in maintaining election integrity and confidence in the results of elections

- the general public interest in maintaining confidence in the security of Australian government information systems in light of increasing domestic and foreign cybersecurity threats which have targetted a number of politically-sensitive Australian institutions

- the specific interest of the computer security research community in security vulnerabilities in internet voting systems, including the NSW iVote system and a number of comparable systems used overseas which have been formally studied by academic researchers and covered in technology industry media (e.g. https://people.eng.unimelb.edu.au/vjteag...

I thank you for your consideration of this request and look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew

Dear ACT Electoral Commission,

To clarify my request, my request for documents relating to the awarded contract 31093.210 is a request for the original contract including the Statement of Requirements, rather than the redacted version posted on the Tenders ACT website.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew
