The Ghana National Identification Project is based on a Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer (DBFOT) model of Public Private Partnership (PPP) with the National Identification Authority, engineered by Margins Group to register and issue multiapplication smartcards to Ghanaian citizens. It will afford the government and people of Ghana the ability to deepen and strengthen our foundations of democracy, economic and social inclusion by ensuring no citizen is left behind. It will improve upon national security by providing a secure, credible and accountable register for the identification and registration of all citizens and residents in the country. The new multiapplication smartcard is known as the “GhanaCard”.
In 2007, Margins Group was the leader of the local consortium, Ghana Identification Company Ltd (GIDC) which partnered the Prime Contractor Sagem DS as part of the very first Ghana National ID Project. ICPS manufactured the nation’s very first National ID cards.
