AEC pays $15m to company run by ex-NSW Liberal Party President

by | Apr 6, 2022 | Lobbyland

The Australian Electoral Commission has over $15 million in contracts with printing and marketing company IVE Group which is run by former NSW Liberal Party President Geoff Selig.

Geoff Selig, former NSW Liberal President between 2005 and 2008, runs IVE Group/Blue Star which is a printing/marketing company.

IVE were in the news for over $18 million in contracts that were awarded without an open contract, as reported by Adele Ferguson in 2020.

The AEC is conducting business with IVE. One such contract is worth $15 million, for printing services, and extends till 2023. This contract was awarded through an open tender.

MWM acknowledges that it is difficult to choose a large Australian company without links to political parties given the high rotation of political figures into big business. For more examples see our Revolving Doors database.
