The Cabinet Office is seeking identity assurance providers to sign a three-year, £150 million contract on behalf of the Government Digital Service (GDS).
The deal will see up to 10 firms deliver identity assurance services through the Government’s Gov.uk Verify programme, its new method for website visitors to prove their identity when necessary to do so.
The Cabinet Office’s tender notice read: “The aspiration is for central government, together with the providers under this framework agreement and others, to work together to develop, broaden and stimulate the market for identity assurance services. This aspiration is initially focused on the wider public sector, with potential expansion into the private sector and other countries to follow.”
The Cabinet Office expects to award the contract in April next year.
