Electoral Commission – Biometric Voting System

Electoral Commission Biometric Voting System

Integrated Solutions

In 2012 Super Tech was contracted by the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) to design a biometric voting system. The Commission was interested in eliminating incidents of multiple voting and identity theft while preparing for the upcoming elections. Super Tech developed a multi-disciplinary integrated solution that was deployed in two stages.

The first stage included the creation of a national biometric voter’s registration of 14 million eligible voters in just 60 days:

  • Production of Cold laminated voter ID cards containing unique voter ID number, picture and barcode.
  • Provision of tier 3 data centre and data network.
  • Distribution of 8000 kits of Central Automated Biometric Identification System
  • Training of 20,000 EC system operators.
  • Development and implementation of Voter Management System.
  • Prevent duplication or fraud in the new voters register.
  • Allocate voters to a specific polling station.

The second stage included the Biometric registration and verification system which consisted of:

  • Supply of 70,000 Biometric Verification devices (BVD).
  • Preparation of the BVDs with constituency information from the register.
  • Training of the 70,000 people for the verification process on the polling stations during Election Day.

The above solution demonstrates Super Tech's capabilities to integrate multiple solutions such as system development, fully redundant data centre and disaster recovery site, communication between all sites and physical security, to create a flawless turnkey solution  in a short period of just 18 months. This resulted in Ghana being the first nation to use a biometric voting system on Election Day.

NHIA Biometric Authentication System

NHIA Biometric Authentication System

Integrated Solutions

In 2012 The National Health Insurance Agency contracted Super Tech to provide a complete automated solution for the agency’s daily operations' needs. The main objectives of the solution were to:

  • Create an accurate and updated national membership data base. This will prevent the multiple incidents of identity imposters consuming medical services fraudulently.
  • Provide full patient medical records (medical history, prescribed medications, past claims and more)

Over a period of 2 years, Super Tech developed, deployed and implemented a custom made biometric authentication system for NHIA:

  • Creation of a biometric membership register of over 23 million members (more than 12 million active members). Data was retrieved from district level to a nationwide data base.
  • Development of a smart ID membership card system as well as the generation of a unique identifier (both finger print and picture), with the ability to detect fake or duplicated cards. This customized solution kit includes the following components: finger print scanner, card printer, smart card reader and smart cards with a magnetic chip which contains the members' personal medical data.
  • Provision of 1100 online and offline authentication systems for the agency’s branches.
  • Ongoing support and training to NHIA management and staff.

In order to achieve the above mentioned objectives, Super Tech first leveraged on previous solutions provided to NHIA, which included data centre services to store and back up current available data, ERP and Data networks between all branches and clinics.

Super Tech developed a backend software which enables the collection of the    membership data, includes the online health provider authentication system, centralized complaint and help desk management system, procurement and pay processing for the members, inventory management system to improve transparency, and health provider management system.
