Trinidad and Tobago publishes bid for facial biometrics software

Trinidad and Tobago has published a new bid for the purchase of facial biometric software through the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

The Caribbean country is looking to develop an SDK for facial biometrics, including presentation attack detection (PAD) and deduplication capabilities, support for ICAO’s facial image quality standard for identity documents and support services, the statement said. The bid submission deadline is May 20, 2024, with a pre-bid conference call scheduled for May 9.

While the bid list does not specify the use case for the software, UNDP has been working with the country on digital transformation, including a national digital identity system. At the end of 2023, the country published another bid for digital ID software.

Under the plan, the 1.5 million people will receive unique digital identifiers, allowing them to digitally sign documents and expanding access to financial, education, healthcare and private services.

In early May, Trinidad and Tobago, UNDP and other organizations held a conference entitled Digital Pathways for SIDS 2.0, inviting more than twenty countries from the Caribbean Small Island Development States (SIDS) to discuss digital infrastructure.

Last year, the country also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with India committing to cooperation in the field of digital public infrastructure.
