DHS Chooses Verizon Subsidiary for Work Eligibility Self-Check Service Contract

ContractThe Department of Homeland Security intends to award a contract to a Verizon (NYSE: VZ) subsidiary to support a technology designed to help prospective workers in the U.S. check their employment eligibility.

DHS has selected MCI Communication Services to provide hosted identity and account management services for the federal E-Verify program’s self-check application tool, DHS said Nov. 6 in a FedBizOpps notice.

The contract has a six-month performance period and three one-month options.

MCI Communication Services, which does business as Verizon Business Networks, will also provide 24/7 help desk support through the contract.
