Togo Government selects IDEMIA and Atos to build its national eID system

This project is supported by the World Bank.

The Togolese Agency for Identification, ANID-TOGO, has partnered with IDEMIA and Atos to build a national biometric eID system based on the Modular Open Source Identity Platform (MOSIP). IDEMIA and Atos will design, build, test, and run a biometric national eID solution for Togo based on iris, face, and fingerprint recognition technology. This project is part of the West African UID Regional Integration Program “WURI” with a global budget of $500 million funded by the World Bank.

IDEMIA and Atos’ solution will include a citizen portal, mobile app, contact center, private cloud, cybersecurity, core biometric system, enrolment kits and personalization system for the new eID cards. The end-to-end integrated turnkey solution will be built on a robust and scalable infrastructure platform that can suit current and future needs from Togo government. The project will include a focus on local delivery and competence transfer, with Atos establishing a subsidiary in Togo to ensure the transfer of knowledge and skills to local staff for long-term sustainability.

We are thrilled to partner with Atos and the Togolese government to deliver a biometric eID solution for Togo. The long-standing expertise of IDEMIA is helping to bring about the substantial changes currently under way in the field of digital identification. Having successfully implemented over 200 online and offline systems across the world, we are committed to leveraging our biometric technology and expertise to accompany governments and institutions to deliver on their objectives. With this project, we look forward to supporting Togo’s digital transformation and improving its citizens’ lives.

The implementation of a unique, robust and reliable identification system is imperative in line with the government’s 2020-2025 roadmap, which includes the eID project as one of the 42 priority projects and reforms.
ANID-TOGO spokesperson

Togo has set high targets for economic growth and development, with a focus on strengthening social inclusion and harmony for peacebuilding. Digitalization of the economy is key to achieving these goals. Providing every citizen and resident with a biometric identity will help position Togo as a regional reference in digital technology, thus asserting its place as a logistics and services hub.
