New TEAM Release

TEAM logo

To: All Counties
From: Ann McGeehan, Director of Elections
Date: January 14, 2010
RE: New TEAM Release

Effective January 19, 2010, the TEAM (Texas Election Administration Management) application will reside in a new hardware environment, which is comprised of new state of the art hardware that is more robust than the existing environment. As we have previously stated, TEAM will be unavailable from 6p.m. on January 13, 2010 through 7 p.m. on January 18, 2010 as we convert to the new environment. We have been busy over the last several months testing the application for functionality and performance and have observed improvement in both areas. In addition to improving the technical infrastructure of TEAM, the new release includes some new functionality including:

Application Improvements

Report Changes

All reports are still available in both PDF and CSV format.

New FPCA Functionality - Phase I

We have started work on the expanded FPCA functionality to be in compliance with the new state law requirement which requires FPCA voters to be registered on the official voter registration list, and to lay the groundwork for the federal Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE) by November of this year. Our Phase I - FPCA deployment offered in this version release includes:

SC90 = FPCA record entered by Early Voting clerk to obtain an absentee ballot through 2 federal elections. SC91 = FPCA Voter record entered by Voter Registrar; serves as a regular voter registration application and registration.

Phase II of the FPCA functionality is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2010 and will give offline counties the ability to submit the FPCA (SC90) record along with ballot history.  The federal MOVE Act requires that FPCA voters must be able to track the status of their mail-in ballot and we are awaiting further guidance from federal election authorities on what is required. 

TEAM training classes are currently scheduled for this January/February.  However, we will be hosting additional training classes in June if you cannot attend the winter training.  In addition, we can also conduct individual webinars with counties that may need training on specific functions.

The TEAM Help Desk will be available starting January 19th through January 22nd at 1-866-745-2703.  Counties will have direct access to a member of the Voter Registration staff, and only when all TEAM staff members are on the phone assisting counties will you then be routed to a receptionist.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact our office at (800) 252-2216.
