KPMG has been selected by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) under an Other Transaction Authority contract to help develop a prototype solution for consolidating user accounts and managing access to agency systems, the company announced on Wednesday.

“KPMG is excited to support DISA with this innovative and strategic effort that will help empower ICAM-based services for DISA and its stakeholders,” said Brenda Walker, lead partner for KPMG’s Department of Defense consulting services. “We are delighted to have been chosen and look forward to submitting our prototype.”

The new Identity, Credential and Access Management (ICAM) system would consolidate and update a number of existing approaches to access management, and could be used by agencies throughout the DoD.

KPMG’s prototype will integrate both cloud and on-premises-based software to provide authentication and account management. The company’s work will help assure that only authorized individuals gain access to DISA computer systems and information. KPMG will also provide increased auditability so officials could better evaluate user system access.

KPMG will also work to develop the prototype with the support of UberEther, and will use commercial off-the-shelf software licensed from vendors including Ping Identity, SailPoint and Radiant Logic.
