An Idemia affiliate has received a contract from the U.S. Postal Service and its law enforcement arm to verify the identities of post office customers nationwide.
The company said Tuesday its national security solutions unit will provide biometric capture, in-person proofing and other access identity verification services to thousands of USPS locations.
USPS issued the award as it aims to provide e-government services under a five-year strategic plan.
Andrew Boyd, CEO of Idemia NSS, said the partnership seeks to leverage agency infrastructure to increase public access to identity verification and assurance platforms.
Idemis NSS operates as the company’s Foreign Ownership, Control, or Influence mitigated affiliate.
