5 5 The NIMC Mandate By virtue of the NIMC Act No. 23 of 2007 – threefold: – Set up the NIMC as the primary driver of the Identity Sector Reform; – Takeover the assets and liabilities of the former DNCR (Sec 32); – Implant a National Identity Management System and Infrastructure (which includes harmonization, Unique ID numbers, and issuance of GMPC. NIMC is empowered by the Act to partner with any private or public institution to achieve its objectives e.g. NCC on SIM Register, FIRS on ‘TIN Register’. NIMC’ 4E Implementation Strategy sought to reuse existing Government (2001 SAGEM Agreement) investment in the Identity Sector, particulary Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS)

6 The SAGEM Project Federal Government entered into a Turnkey Agreement with SAGEM in 2001 in the sum of $215,911, (off-shore component) and N2,089,600, (on-shore component) to deliver the Nigerian National ID Card project - an Integrated ID Card Production Facility. Deliverables included the following: The Scanning subsystem; Image Quality Control and the Fingerprint search Verification subsystem; Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS)B (60m) Registered Candidates Database and Digital Library; ID Card personalisation Equipment (18Nos) NBS Horizon personalisation machines; ICR Form Correction Centre; 60,000 Mobile Registration Workstation (MRWs); 60m Registration Forms and 60m ID Cards from France; SAGEM and specified third Party Softwares; Downloading PCs, generators for Local Governments (774) and States and Servers (37); 6

7 Performance and Status of the Project Contract supervised by the Federal Ministry of Interior through the then Department for National Civic Registration (DNCR); By SAGEM records, SAGEM Registered and processed 52,640,908 made up as follows: Total Female - 18,062,443 (separately stored) Total Male - 19,307,165 (separately stored) Total Rejects - 8,098,248 Total Cards Issued - 37,369,608 Contracted for 60m but only 52,640,908 ID Cards records out of which only 37,369,608 were delivered; 8m ID Cards not delivered, SAGEM acknowledges receipt of USD$2.444m payment i.e 40% down payment; About 260,000 Adhoc staff were trained to gather data within 6 weeks; Project concluded in December 2006 and entire system subsequently shut down since then; Operations and management still under SAGEM to date; No form of handing over of operations and management has been conducted; No Nigerian including those DNCR staff trained by SAGEM were allowed to nor can operate the system. 7

8 The SAGEM Handover Issue Contract ended in 2006, SAGEM has not handed over, but: Has confirmed receipt of full payment for contract from FGN; Shut down the ICPF since December2006; Only SAGEM expatriate staff can operate and support the ICPF; 8m ID Cards not delivered, deposit of USD2.444m not refunded; Not successful in bid for NIMC Project in 2006, Did not bid for SI in 2008; Wants to continue the ICPF or be given the contract it did not bid for; Claims a Maintenance fee of USD$6.1m to be paid in full upfront; but has no contract to support claim; Wants a long term Maintenance Agreement at a rate and scope of work designed and approved by SAGEM; Refuses to commit to handing over a functional ICPF and Database in the (unencrypted) format required by NIMC. Continues to insist on full payment of Maintenance and Support Fees without contract and with no Performance Guarantee to hand over the ICPF if paid. 8

9 Efforts to Resolve the SAGEM Issue NIMC offered to: – Pay SAGEM the 2yrs Maintenance Fees of USD$6.1m (inclusive of the USD$2.444m paid for the 8m Cards not delivered); – Payment of balance of USD$3.666m in milestone-based instalments; – SAGEM to execute and implement an MOU on Handover procedure in one month; – NIMC not interested in continuing with ICPF of SAGEM; – NIMC cannot award contract for NIDMS to SAGEM as it has already been awarded following due process by FGN to other solution providers Offer based on strategic need to implement FGN policy on: Re-use of existing investment; – Database of about 40m; and – SAGEM 2001 AFIS; Takeover of assets and liabilities of former DNCR as provided for in NIMC Act; Have Nigerians operate and manage asset henceforth; Failure by SAGEM to handover renders ICPF infrastructure not usable; 9

10 SAGEM’s POSITION SAGEM wants: – NIMC to pay for the 2yrs Maintenance Fees of USD$6.1m (inclusive of the USD$2.444m paid for the 8m Cards not delivered) even though there is no contract; – Payment of balance of USD$3.666m should be in full and upfront as service has been provided as deemed fit by SAGEM; – To retain control of operation and management of ICPF because NIMC has third party service providers; – To hand over without a guarantee that ICPF will be functional since it shut down facility; – NIMC not interested in continuing with ICPF of SAGEM; – NIMC cannot award contract for NIDMS to SAGEM as it has already been awarded following due process by FGN other solution / service providers; 10

11 Rationale for resolving the SAGEM Issue Re-use of part of existing FGN investment; – Database (though separated into female and male, needs ‘cleaning up’ to be populated); – AFIS (though it is 2001 technology) can be redeployed as an interim measure and a service; – Have Nigerians operate and manage asset henceforth; – Avoid duplication and wastage Incorporate into the NIDMS project: Make 40m records Database available for possible uses under the NIDMS; Facilitate deployment for possible validation processes in the interim; access to the database for ease of operations and statutory functions of intelligence community as necessary. 11
