Internal Affairs wants to develop two online applications, logon service and identity verification service.
The Department is seeking ideas from organisations interested in forming a relationship to use its igvot services, and to further develop, fund or distribute the services. It is already working with government agencies using the igovt logon service and will pilot the identity verification service with its Birth, Deaths and Marriages unit and genealogist community later this year. It says it could extend the services to the private sector.
The applications allow companies to authenticate and verify the identity of individuals by electronic means. The logon services were developed for government use to allow users to have one logon for use with different agencies.
Use of the igovt services by companies as well as government departments, would provide high volumes of traffic for the department and mean future revenue growth.
The deadline for replies is Wednesday, September 23. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference number 27082.
