SLI Compliance’s approach to Functional Testing reduces time and cost while ensuring full requirements coverage and repeatability of results. Our Functional Testing is modular and can adapt to any situation and list of requirements.  Our methodology provides validation for all aspects of the system and maintains explicit traceability between requirements, system functionality, and test results.

SLI Compliance developers test modules that are extensible to meet any future needs of the testing program. Our approach allows for easy training that enables users to readily develop tests, perform updates and modifications, and revise processes as the system evolves.

We can also emulate voting officials creating the necessary data in the Election Management Systems that provide input for the electronic voting interfaces.  Our experience with accuracy testing and validation of results provides the expertise to audit the results and pinpoint any issues.

In addition, SLI Compliance has developed a proprietary set of tools that simulate various transmission rates of encrypted voting data for performance, load, volume, and stress testing.  The simulated network allows our team to perform all the necessary functional, security, and performance testing, as well as network monitoring (scanning, sniffing, etc.), encryption strength analysis, and simulating various network attacks.



  • I want to thank you again for SLI's independent assessment of Broomfield's election procedures and subsequent development of updated election procedures. SLI's work assisted the City Council greatly in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of existing systems and helped restore confidence in these systems for future elections.

  • It is with sincere gratitude and appreciation that we unconditionally recommend SLI. Our effort to obtain Meaningful Use Stage 2 Certification for our community health software platform required significant interpretation of the federal guidelines that SLI provided in plain English, on an as needed, and always timely basis. The staff is outstanding and their attitude is nothing less than grace under pressure. To keep it all together, with client after client struggling to interpret often vague federal guidelines, is laudable. The bottom line is that we had a choice, and we went with a recommendation for SLI based on a couple interviews with folks that preceded us, and it turned out to be the best possible decision.

  • I sought SLI’s assistance in providing information to me on testing practices for the Uniform Voting System (UVS) that the State of Colorado is seeking. I also worked with them as they developed a report for the Colorado Voter Access and Modernized Elections Commission on an assessment of voting system technology in Colorado. The results provided by SLI were valuable and helped the state make key decisions regarding Colorado's UVS strategy. As our project moves forward, we expect to call upon SLI to test one or more proposed systems to meet Colorado Voting System Certification Standards.

  • The SLI team, in my opinion, was outstanding. I truly appreciated this process and all the guidance they provided. Not only did this team well represent themselves and the expertise they possess, but also well represented the SLI organization. I would highly recommend SLI to anyone...

  • We are so gratified that our cumulative efforts have yielded the much-needed results. I must hasten to add that the work of the entire SLI team has lent so much credibility to this entire electoral process. For this alone, you have the gratitude of not just this member of the Technical Evaluation Committee, but more likely that of an entire nation.
