An estimated 1.1 billion people worldwide cannot officially prove their identity, according to the 2017 update of the World Bank’s Identification for Development (ID4D) Global Dataset.
How do we prove who we are to the people and institutions with whom we interact? Imagine trying to open your first bank account, prove your eligibility for health insurance, or apply for university without an ID; quality of life and opportunities become severely restricted. An officially-recognized form of ID is the key enabler – critical not only for exercising a wide range of rights but also for accessing healthcare, education, finance, and other essential services. According to the World Bank Group’s latest estimates, this is problematic for an estimated 1.1 billion people around the globe.
The World Bank just released a Request for Expression Of Interest (REOI) to pre-qualify suppliers interested in participating on a follow on solicitation to award contracts for the provision of IT Implementation, Development and Support Services that encompasses the three broad components as specified above.
