SGI issuing RFP for driver's licence production
Dec. 19, 2014
SGI has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for driver’s licence and identification card production services.
SGI’s current five-year contract for driver’s licence and identification card production expires at the end of March 2016.
The RFP also requests proposals for facial recognition services and image capture solutions. Facial recognition software provides enhanced security, and is useful in protection against fraud. It will protect Saskatchewan residents from identity theft and prevent people from obtaining multiple licences and/or IDs.
Saskatchewan and Quebec are the only provinces in Canada not yet using facial recognition software in their driver’s licensing programs.
SGI has given vendors until Feb. 13, 2015 to offer their proposals.
Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) is the province's self-sustaining auto insurance fund. SGI operates 21 claims centres and five salvage centres across Saskatchewan with a head office in Regina. SGI also works with a network of over 400 motor licence issuers across the province. Customers can now do some transactions online. Look for the MySGI link under Online Services on your motor licence issuer's website or SGI's website.
