In a B&T scenario, public authorities pay Zetes for the execution of a project in a short period of time, usually a few months. This type of contracts is very common for biometric registration of citizens in the frame of an election, as well as the enrolment of militaries and/or civil servants.
In this model, Zetes delivers:
- Project management
- Hardware and software components
- Training of operators
- Training of technicians
- Support and services
The government is usually in charge of the operations on-site and the remuneration of the operators.
Compared with the Build & Operate, this model requires an up-front investment from the authorities, as the enrolment, data deduplication and/or the voter ID cards are usually free for the registered people.
