Expression of interest

Expression of Interest in accreditation under and participation in the Australian Government Digital Identity System.

We invite applications from private sector organisations interested in accreditation under the Trusted Digital Identity Framework (TDIF) or to participate in the Australian Government Digital Identity System (the System).

This EOI is open from 10.00am AEDT am on Monday 6 December 2021 until 5.00pm AEDT on 4 March 2022.

Please note, responses will not be monitored between 25 December 2021 and 3 January 2022 (inclusive).

Background

Millions of Australians and Australian businesses have already chosen to use Digital Identity to access 80 government services online. However, the Australian Government is proposing legislation to expand the System to enable greater participation by state and territory governments and the private sector.

To prepare and encourage private sector participation in the System, we invite businesses to register their interest using the form below. The form asks you to indicate what service(s) your organisation would like to provide or access in the System, identify your readiness for TDIF accreditation (if relevant), and/or request further engagement with the DTA team to explore your options.

Why should I sign up?

Your participation in the EOI will inform further development of the System, ensuring it will meet the needs of participants and consumers. This EOI will help us to understand your organisation’s interest in seeking accreditation and/or participating in the System in the future. For the latest updates on how you can participate, please visit our System partners page.

Our Digital Identity team will work with you to answer your questions, and connect you with resources to help you make an informed decision about potential future System participation.

EOI eligibility

This EOI is aimed at increasing engagement with, and gauging interest from, businesses that would like to participate in the System in one of the specified roles:

  • Identity provider
  • Attribute service provider
  • Credential service provider
  • Identity exchange
  • Relying parties.

We want to hear from a range of industry sectors, including – but not limited to: education, financial services, employment, and government providers of licences and certificates.

The EOI is not suitable for individuals. If you want to create a Digital Identity, visit the myGovID website or email digitalidentity@dta.gov.au if you have any questions.

Terms and conditions

This EOI aims to identify potential interest in the System. Your expression of interest does not guarantee accreditation under the TDIF or onboarding to participate in the System. Importantly, the passing of the Trusted Digital Identity Bill is required to enable onboarding to the System to expand beyond Australian Government services to states and territories and the private sector.

There will be a separate approach to market in the future regarding private sector participation in the System.

Any personal and commercial information you provide will be used for the EOI process only, including enabling us to contact you to discuss what forms of collaboration might exist. This information will be collected, used and disclosed in accordance with the Digital Identity Privacy Policy.
