basis of a good e-governance system is the access to services, and this is important to develop the economy in a country. Bangladesh got a credit line from World Bank for establish a NID system, meaning NID number for each citizen, followed by issuing an ID card, for multi purposes, including to be used as voting card. Several Request for Expression of Interest in Consulting work on different fiels related to this credit line have been published, since beginning of this year. We as SID Consult are specialist in NID card production system, including the whole manufacturing processes,can assist in all needed tendereing processes, are independent of any supplyer or manufacturer. Re the mentioned requests we have not seen any reaction or results yet , we participated in answering re procurement and have in our team also IT specialist, as we can call in more people. We believe strongly that local manufacturing , not importing of cards or passports as it happens now. Local production will create jobs, will push technology and will save money. The paper of World Bank is not showing this, arguing lack of expierience of the Governmnet printer who can print banknotes. Why not to train them producing plastic cards ? We have managed such introduction of new technologies to other countries. Any comment on this ?
