This will be the 69th time PwC has been asked to count the votes and safeguard the results until the crucial moment.
Though the count is low tech, PwC staff give it as much attention as any other piece of work. Greg Garrison, lead ballot partner at the firm, said: ‘Our tried and tested system has relied on absolute secrecy, checking and double-checking, to make sure we give the Academy the accurate, independent count they expect.’
PwC doesn’t just count the votes: the firm manages the balloting of 5,800 academy members. The count is undertaken at a secret location known by only a few staff members.
