The system will need to handle 5.4 million applications per annum

The Home Office’s Identity and Passport Service (IPS) wants to implement a facial recognition system that will help the department determine an applicant’s entitlement to and eligibility for a British passport thereby clamping down on passport fraud.

The system will need to handle 5.4 million applications per annum, which can be as many as 20,000 adult applications per day. The system will also need to be re-usable by other customers within the Home Office, or other public sector bodies.

IPS wants to procure both a facial recognition engine and a facial recognition workflow capability, which will cost the Home Office up to GBP 15 million.
