SINGAPORE — The Elections Department Singapore (ELD) has put up a tender notice to acquire at least 150 booths – which must include a vertical stand and writing table-top – by 31 October.

The tender notice was put up by the department – which is under the Prime Minister’s Office – on government procurement portal GeBIZ on Tuesday (10 September). Suppliers are to submit their quotation bids by 19 September.

While the tender document states a firm quantity of 150 booths, the ELD also stated an option to acquire 50 to 350 additional pieces.

The successful tenderer must produce a pre-production mock-up booth for the authority’s comments and approval, before proceeding to fabricate the agreed number of booths within a six-week period after the award of the contract.

The notice did not state when the contract will be awarded.

The call for tender comes after the announcement on 4 September that Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has convened the Electoral Boundaries Review Committee, a move which officially begins the process leading up to a general election.

The committee has been directed to review the boundaries of the current electoral divisions and to recommend the number and boundaries of Group Representation Constituencies and Single Member Constituencies.

The next general election must be held by 15 April 2021.
