MRTD report features ICAO procurement guide

Oct 1, 2015

See the latest article from Markus Hartmann, CEO of HJP Consulting and Chairman of the Procurement Sub-Group within the ICAO Implementation and Capacity Building Working Group (ICBWG) featured in the current ICAO MRTD Report. The article explains how the ICAO Procurement Guide helps Member States in the planning of procurement projects for machine-readable travel documents (MRTD), e.g. the procurement of a new e-passport issuance system. The procurement guide that was first introduced in May 2014 explores key points to consider when planning an MRTD project.

It highlights 5 steps of the procurement process:

  1. Defining needs
  2. Preparing tender process
  3. Evaluating bids
  4. Award contract
  5. Operating change management

The roles, work packages and outcome of each step are specifically explained for MRTD-related systems.
