CrimTrac’s $46.8 million contract with NEC for Biometric Identification Services was the largest reported on AusTender last week (23-27 May 2016).
The contract for a centralised facial recognition and fingerprint system will run between 20 April 2016 and 30 November 2022, and will replace the National Automated Fingerprint Identification System, which is supplied by Morpho. It is NEC’s largest contract so far in 2015-16.
Excluding the contract, NEC ranks 35th on Intermedium’s 2015-16 Supplier Leader Board with 10 contracts worth $37.3 million. NEC has signed a total of 151 contracts worth $104.2 million since Intermedium began collecting contracting data in 2009-10.
