The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) continues to pump millions of dollars into the local printing industry, with two new mega deals unveiled on the federal government’s AusTender site.

Brisbane-based James Ferguson Ltd, trading as Fergies, has signed a $1.85 million contract extension to supply the AEC with Printing, Packaging and Storing of Ballot Papers, making the new deal worth a total of $3.5 million. The contract, which began in 2016, now runs until 30 October, 2020. According to its website, Fergies, established 1868, was the first and only Australia Post Bulk Mail Partner-accredited company in Queensland with offset print capability.

IVE Group has secured a new $1.5 million agreement that runs from December 2017 to December 2020 to supply the AEC with Printing of the Official Guide to electoral events.

Sydney-based Computershare has been awarded a five-month, $63,000 contract with the AEC for a job described as Printing – dress rehearsals.

Earlier this month, Sydney direct mail and marketing specialist The Camerons Group kicked off the new year with a $3 million contract to print envelopes for the AEC.
