DIA is a world leader in identity verification and issuing secure passports. Facial Recognition (FR) is a cornerstone of the automated rules processing in the Passports System. DIA is now seeking to replace the current FR solution and look more broadly at its usage across DIA.

DIA is looking to take advantage of industry improvements both now and for the future and move to a service delivery model as an operational cost rather than ongoing capital investment. DIA is therefore taking an as a service approach to procuring a FR capability.

DIA recognises that other New Zealand Government agencies may currently or in the future wish to utilise a DIA Lead FR Service. On this basis, DIA wish to proceed with an Open Syndicated Contract. This will allow any other Government agency to use the contract. DIA will act as the Lead Agency and deal with all aspects of the contract development and management.
