Royal Oman Police, in its role as passport issuing authority of the Sultanate of Oman, awarded HJP Consulting (HJP) with a consulting contract for the new Omani e-passport project. This is HJP’s fourth electronic ID consultancy contract in the Middle East region.
The scope of the project is to support Royal Oman Police in the planning, procurement and implementation of the new Omani e-passport project. HJP will enable Royal Oman Police to select the best suitable supplier for delivering a new electronic passport booklet and the related IT system.
As a first step, the HJP consultants provide an AS-IS-Study. Based on this study, HJP will develop a set of requirements specifications based on the particular needs of Royal Oman Police, which incorporate all relevant recommendations provided by the International Civil Aviation Organization. The requirements towards the new e-passport system will then be issued within an international public tender process inviting bidders to submit their pertinent proposals.
HJP will support the Royal Oman Police during the evaluation of bids based on a sound evaluation methodology. Finally, HJP will help during the ramp up phase of the implementation project.
