ICF will make Social Security Administration more secure

Five-year award includes application development, training and implementation support services

ICF International Inc. will provide an array of initiatives designed to enhance the nationwide physical security of the Social Security Administration under a five-year contract worth $10.5 million.

The award from the SSA’s Office of Protective Security Services includes application development, training and implementation support services.

Under the terms of the contract, ICF International will enhance SSA’s existing Security Automated Features and Enhancements application platform, known as SAFE, which provides for comprehensive, paperless management of the agency’s many physical security business processes.

According to an ICF International statement released today, SAFE enhancements will include the development of Physical Access Control System Central core functionality.

PACS Central will consist of a set of software libraries and components that will act as a central hub, connecting SSA’s existing Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 Card Management System, Public Key Infrastructure, and PACS systems.

SAFE enhancement will be deployed at SSA headquarters in Woodlawn, Md., and at as many as 10 regional offices nationwide, the announcement said.

The SAFE project will put SSA at the forefront of realizing the ultimate objective of the HSPD-12 directive, which is enhanced security of federal government facilities based on the use of standardized, secure identity credentials, R. Kerry Sundstrom, senior vice president at ICF International, said in the statement.

ICF International Inc., of Fairfax, Va., ranks No. 66 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal contractors.
