A significant milestone has been reached on the British National Identity Scheme. The Register reports that the Identity and Passport Service has now produced a shortlist of 8 companies who will compete for work in implementing the National Identity Scheme. The companies are:

  • Accenture,
  • BAE Systems,
  • CSC,
  • EDS,
  • Fujitsu,
  • IBM,
  • Steria, and
  • Thales

It seems a change of government will definitely be required to scrap this scheme.
