Transparency for National ID Card Project in Bangladesh & IT Vendor Selection
BIO-key, Tiger IT Awarded a follow-on contract for Bangladesh ID
This solution is being used to prepare voter rolls and issue national ID cards in preparation for Bangladesh's general elections to be held in 2008.
The initial implementation of the solution has successfully registered and issued national ID cards for nearly 5 million people and demonstrated the creation of local voter rolls for the election.
