The Bahamas Awards Indusa LLC Its Contract For Biometric Passports, Visas, Work Permits And Border Control Management Systems

For Immediate Release

GREENVILLE, S.C./EWORLDWIRE/Dec. 26, 2006 --- Indusa LLC, a Greenville, South Carolina-based IT development and consulting firm, announces the signing of a contract with The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Government of The Bahamas, to provide one of the first biometrics based E-Passport solutions implemented in the Americas. The Indusa solution adheres to the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) standards and delivers a multi-level identity management solution combining fingerprints, facial characteristics and signature capture. In accordance with ICAO's global objectives, requiring all countries to have machine-readable passports by May 2010, The Bahamas Passport project is a comprehensive system for the issuance of E-Passports, Visas, Work Permits, and other travel documents,
extending to Border Control Management as well as the overall collection, verification and management of biometric data.

"This highly automated and fully secure identity management and border control system will enhance our capabilities in securing the Bahamas from identity theft, which tends to go hand-in-hand with illegal migration and
drug smuggling," said The Hon. Fred Mitchell, The Bahamas Minister of Foreign Affairs.

"At Indusa LLC, we are pleased to be working with The Bahamas on such a complex and challenging system because The Bahamas is a popular tourist destination, comprising over 700 islands with approximately twenty
international points of entry for air and cruise visitors and returning nationals," said James Ram, president of Indusa LLC.

"We chose Indusa because they offered a system that was high-tech and secure, yet simple and convenient. It is very important that we afford The Bahamian people an easy way to apply for a passport, as well as simplify
the process for our visitors on entry to The Bahamas and for Non-Bahamians wishing to obtain a visa or work permit, which will also include the new biometric features. The enrolment process has to be fast and intuitive, and
we must be able to collect biometric data at the same time as the demographic information that has always been required," added Vernon Burrows, The Bahamas Director of Immigration.

Indusa's implementation partners include Iris Berhad and De La Rue. Iris is a global security solution provider from Malaysia with core expertise in the area of securing government security documents, i.e. National ID and
Passport. Iris pioneered the world's first electronic passport and national multi-application smart card and its products include a full range of smartcard readers, integrated terminals, card personalization equipment
and biometrics scanners. De La Rue is the world's largest commercial security printer and papermaker, involved in the production of over 150 national currencies and a wide range of security documents i.e. secure passports, identity cards and drivers licenses. The solution to be deployed in The Bahamas is developed on the Microsoft platform.
