DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC) has secured a potential $150 million contract to help the General Services Administration deliver personal identity verification credential issuance and maintenance services to civilian agency employees.
The company said it will help run GSA’s USAccess program under Homeland Security Presidential Directive through the potential 10-year contract.
HSPD-12 serves as a common identification standard for federal employees and contractors and mandates the use of reliable forms of identification to increase security and personal privacy at civilian agencies.
“We are honored to continue a long-standing partnership with GSA to support Personal Identity Verification technologies for more than 100 federal agencies,” said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager of DXC’s public sector business and an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2017.
Under the contract, DXC will oversee more than 1.4 million identities across the federal government as the USAccess service provider.
GSA created the USAccess program to serve as a tool for agencies to issue and maintain common HSPD-12-compliant credentials to employees and contractor personnel.
