Department of Internal Affairs - Facial Recognition for Passports
The Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) is in the process of preparing a business case for the implementation of a new Facial Recognition Solution to support the processing of New Zealand Passport Applications.

DIA is expecting to take an ‘as a service’ approach to procuring a facial recognition capability. Instead of paying a vendor to build a system that DIA would then own, DIA will select a vendor that can deliver a suitable service that DIA will pay to use.
