A stringent procedure is surrounding the large-scale events that call on independent accounting firms to ensure the credibility of the voting process.
In the Journal de Montréal, reporter Emmanuelle Plante interviewed Bernard Grandmont, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Partner and Public Accountant, about this procedure.
You must prepare ahead of time to ensure that the vote takes place properly. Bernard Grandmont is regularly called upon to oversee the smooth operation of programs with a voting process. Mr. Grandmont and his team have been involved in programs such as Le banquier, La Voix, Occupation double, Danser pour gagner, the Adisq and Artis galas. The process requires that several precautions be taken.
Mr. Grandmont explained, “When a program provides for a substantial reward at its conclusion, you generally need someone independent and impartial to ensure that everything is done according to the rules. We meet with the people in charge of the various components: web, SMS and telephony providers. Everything is closely monitored to make sure there are no IT glitches, that each platform is secure, and that no intrusion is possible. We have a very rigorous process to ensure the security parameters.”
