🌐DPI advisory

CDPI's individual, customised engagement with countries!

The Centre for DPI is:

  1. Software neutral (we have no product offering of our own and can provide tech architecture advisory regardless of the software you use)

  2. Technology neutral (we are happy to support countries regardless of whether they choose open source or private procurement)

  3. Financing neutral (we don't provide funding or take any money for our services, we are philanthropically funded and work on a pro bono basis)

  4. Government neutral (we are a global team, happy to work with any interested government and have no political alignment)

  5. Country neutral (our team spans 5 countries, 3 continents, and we work with global dev partners, tech providers and funders without preference for one over another)

At CDPI, we are only biased towards one thing: Implementation!

Whichever country, government, funder, technology and software can help DPI implementation roll out in accordance with best practices, and fast timelines, we are happy to support them and work with them to promote global DPI implementation in the country's best interests.

CDPI has team members who have rolled out DPI projects at scale in their own countries, and continues to do so in various contexts (including Daniel Abadie who oversaw Argentina's verifiable credentials system, Emmanuel Khisa who worked on ID and Payments in Africa, and Pramod Varma, the chief architect of the India Stack)

Any country can approach CDPI (please email info@cdpi.dev) to engage with us. CDPI can help share some knowledge and insights on the best practices to adopt while designing their digital transformation journeys to ensure they reach scale in sustainable manners, power public and private innovation, and are able to create interoperable, reusable building blocks with minimal funding and resource constraints.

The engagement with CDPI can be as low-touch or intensive as the country chooses. Since CDPI doesn't undertake any project management, funding or software offering, the complete control over the engagement remains with the country, with CDPI supporting however the country sees fit.

There are three levels of engagement typically carried out between a country and CDPI. The engagement can progress from one level to the next as per the country's interest and progress.

  1. Conversational: Where CDPI informally talks to country representatives to understand the ecosystem, provide broad guidance on the DPI approach, best practices, powerful +1s to existing initiatives etc. through virtual calls.

  2. Co-Creation: Where a country chooses to engage with CDPI on a specific use-case or project to collaborate on a detailed strategy note, align stakeholders, build out the tech architecture etc. through virtual calls that may be accelerated through physical visits if required.

  3. Roll-out Action: Where a country is rolling out the DPI pilot or project in line with the advise received from CDPI and its other stakeholders, and needs continued support as they reach scale.

For more information on how CDPI can engage with countries, please feel free to reach out to us at info@cdpi.dev. To understand how CDPI can provide pre-packaged DPI product, policy and program management kits for rapid deployment, please see DPI as a packaged Solution (DaaS).
