National access card tenders about to roll

In yesterday's blog about Federal budget developments I mentioned it wasn't clear what next steps were contemplated regarding the national access card. This report in today's Australian gives some details including the fact that a major tender is to be advertised in the next few days.

Meanwhile Frank Abagnale, the real life fraudster depicted in Steven Spielberg's movie "Catch Me If You Can" and now a consultant on fraud and identity theft, has told the BBC that identity cards will be easily cloned . He gives the planned UK card "six months before someone replicates it perfectly."

Thanks to Pogowasright for the lead
