E.R.S group awarded 12-month contract

A UK-based company has been awarded the contract to deliver then process forms containing Manx household data.

It's part of the annual update of the Island's electoral register. 

The Electoral Reform Services, or E.R.S group, secured a 12-month deal following a procurement exercise by government.

The Isle of Man Post Office had previously delivered this service.

Paper forms sent out across the Island as part of the yearly canvass are now marked with a UK address, website and telephone number for residents to respond to.

Once the information has been captured, the London-based organisation ,which employs around 200 people, will send it back to the Cabinet Office, which will  then update the register.

It's understood the data will not be kept or used for any other reason, and is protected by General Data Protection Regulation legislation.
