The Road Safety Authority published this Contract Award over the weekend.
Description of the contract:
Review of Irish Driver Licencing System in preparation for introduction of Plastic Card LicencePersonally I'd welcome a nice, plastic card to replace my existing, tatty paper one. But after the PPARS & E-Voting debacles can we get this one right and at reasonable cost?Name and Address of successful supplier, contractor or service provider:
1 Grand Canal Place, Dublin2
Also, could and should this card have other uses beyond just holding Driving License information? It's not clear from the tender if the intent is to have a magnetic strip and/or a smart chip on it but I'm guessing in this day and age it will.
