Background Analysis

The City has a Contract for Professional Services, C-40044, with Konnech, Inc. for the Elections Management System.  The current contract value is $260,000 and expires September 23, 2018.                

In April 2015, Information Technology and City Clerk’s Office issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the design, implementation and support of a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) Elections Management System, along with ancillary software and services.  Konnech was awarded a contract to provide the services for the Elections and Voter Services Departments. 

Customizations are necessary to better match the business processes and the laws that govern the election process and allow greater enhancement of the application to better align this software.  In addition, mobile apps and greater reporting functions are available that were outside the original scope that will help streamline the business processes.
