Fifty firms at first ID card bid meeting

Sarah Arnott writes in Computing:

Fifty potential suppliers to the government’s planned multi-million pound biometric identity card programme participated in the first bidders’ conference last week.

The procurement for the scheme was launched last month and the framework contracts – which will handle up to £2bn of subsequent business – are expected to be signed within nine months.

    I would have thought a boycott of any firms involved in the ID cards fiasco was an ideal avenue to protest about this insidious scheme.

  2. Nottingham Defy-ID has it’s own postcode searchable company locator database, which identifies the companies and their involvement in the ID scheme, and even tells you where their offices are nationwide
