Covansys Corp. has won a $3.4 million contract from the Idaho Secretary of State to implement a voter registration system, the company announced today.
Covansys of Farmington Hills, Mich., will design, develop and install Idaho's Statewide Voter Registration System, which will be in place by July 1, 2005, the company said.
Covansys' teammates include PCC Technology Group of Bloomfield, Conn. PCC will provide its voter registration and election management system software product known as ElectioNet.
The new, statewide, voter registration system will allow cities and counties throughout the state to share data, exchange information among agencies, validate and identify voters, process special voter applications, scan registration cards, generate poll lists and issue reports.
The statewide voter registration system will help Idaho comply with the Help America Vote Act of 2002, which requires all states to implement a centralized and interactive statewide voter registration system that will be administered at the state level.
Covansys, a provider of public-sector solutions for health and human services, public retirement, public health, motor vehicle services and unemployment insurance, has 4,800 employees and had annual revenue of $378.8 million.
