GOP Voter Vault outsourced to India
PC World magazine is reporting today that the development of the GOP's Voter Vault - a massive national voter file database - was outsourced (by their Seattle contractor, Advanced Custom Software) to a company in India.
PC World has recently learned that the major development work on the Voter Vault was done in India. Though the RNC began work on a national database of voters in the mid-1990s, the Voter Vault wasn't ready to be put into the field until the 2002 elections. Two years prior to the 2002 elections, the RNC hired Advanced Custom Software (ACS) of Seattle to build a Web-based database to help campaign workers target likely Republican voters. According to information posted on Elance.com, an online directory of outsourcing firms, ACS subcontracted development of the database to Compulink Systems of Maharashtra, India.
