    1. Background

      EC, headed by the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO), an agent of Parliament, is an independent, non-partisan agency with unique organizational features that reports directly to Parliament. EC exercises general direction and supervision over the conduct of election events such as general elections, by-elections and referendums at the federal level.

    EC is seeking feedback from suppliers on EC requirements for a solution to support ERM.

    EC is issuing this RFI to:

    1. Provide an equal opportunity for suppliers that may be interested in supplier engagement with EC;
    2. Validate solution concepts that could assist EC in further defining requirements;
    3. Identify requirements/strategy, and should legislation be enabled, develop planning, and solicitation documents;
    4. Refine the procurement strategy, project structure, timelines, requirements definition, and other aspects of the requirement; and
    5. Become a more "informed buyer" with an enhanced understanding of supplier goods and service offerings. 

    2. Requirement

    Elections Canada (EC) is seeking opportunities to improve the solutions that support the capture, management, and dissemination of election results. To this end, EC has created the Election Results Modernization (ERM) project. The scope of this project includes making recommendations for streamlining business processes and leveraging technology that could be employed to improve management of results.

    3. Important Information

    The information provided by Elections Canada in this RFI is preliminary and may change. This RFI is not a solicitation nor will it be used to pre-qualify or otherwise restrict participation in a future solicitation. 

    The information provided by respondent(s) may be used to refine the procurement strategy. The issuance of this RFI does not create an obligation for Elections Canada to issue a subsequent procurement, and does not bind Elections Canada legally or otherwise, to enter into any agreement or to accept any suggestions from respondent(s). However, Elections Canada reserves the right to accept or reject any or all recommendations received. 

    All supplier consultations will be documented and this information is subject to the Access to Information Act.

    4. Responding to the Request for Information

    To respond to the RFI, you do not need to provide all of the components on ERCD nor are you required to have previous experience with Elections Canada or the Government of Canada. 

    The RFI questionnaire is structured to allow for respondents to complete the components and areas that they are specifically willing to share information with Elections Canada. The objective is to obtain sufficient information from respondents to ensure the required analysis may be performed to allow for recommendations to best align its Elections Canada Contact Centers Project.
