DXC TechnologyÂ (NYSE: DXC) has securedÂ a potential $150 million contract to help the General Services AdministrationÂ deliver personal identity verification credential issuance and maintenance services toÂ civilianÂ agency employees.
The company said it will help runÂ GSA’s USAccess program under Homeland Security PresidentialÂ DirectiveÂ throughÂ the potentialÂ 10-year contract.
HSPD-12 serves as a common identification standard for federal employees and contractors andÂ 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, DXCÂ willÂ oversee more than 1.4 million identities acrossÂ the federal government as the USAccess service provider.
GSA created theÂ USAccessÂ program to serve as a tool for agenciesÂ to issue and maintain common HSPD-12-compliantÂ credentials to employees and contractor personnel.
