Voters at the last federal election.

IVE Group has signed a $2.1 million contract extension to its now $4.8 million deal with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) for the printing of ballot papers for the next federal election.

The original agreement covered printing, packaging and storing of ballots for the 2016 federal election and was later amended to include by-elections in Bennelong and New England.

The extension until December 2019 will include the production and printing of ballot materials for the next federal election, which Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says “should take place in April or May 2019.”

IVE also signed a new $300,000 contract with the AEC for the printing and packaging of ballot materials for multiple industrial relations elections in Victoria.

Elsewhere, the Department of Defence updated a $1.4 million printed publications contract for “F111 Publications” from a supplier with a New York, US postal address.

Melbourne-based Objective 3D signed a $479,088.50 contract to supply a 3D printing system to the federal government’s scientific research body the CSIRO.

Konica Minolta Business Solutions in the ACT won an extension to a now $626,587 contract to supply the Department of Home Affairs with YSoft Swipe to Print software.
