“The market has shown considerable interest in the MitID tender and the project has drawn attention from both international and Danish suppliers. It has been our goal to create the greatest possible competition for the solution and I am happy that with the four tenderers this seems very promising. We have an exciting time ahead of us,” says deputy director-general in the Danish Agency for Digitisation Adam Lebech.
The four suppliers are chosen because of their professional competence in the form of references that have documented relevant experience. Good ideas aren’t enough. The partnership behind MitID makes high demands for good reasons when it comes to innovation and future-proofing as well as the stability and safety of the solution.
