Postal Service Picks SecureKey for Federal Cloud-Based ID Program

CloudThe U.S. Postal Service has awarded Toronto-based SecureKey Technologies a potential three-year,  $15, 125, 000 contract to implement a cloud computing-based authentication platform for the federal government.

The agency received 18 proposals for the Federal Cloud Credential Exchange program and rated technical criteria as more important than price when evaluating proposals, the agency said in an Aug. 20 FedBizOpps notice.

“SecureKey’s proposal was determined to offer the best value because SecureKey had the highest rated technical proposal and offered the second lowest price, ” the notice says.

FCCX will work to help individuals to use existing and approved third-party digital credentials to log into federal agencies’ online services without requiring a different password or other digital identification for each service, SecureKey says.

SecureKey will provide its briidge.net Exchange platform for the FCCX service, which aims to encourage federal agencies to use third-party credentials such as user names, passwords and Personal Identity Verification cards.
