HP wins $102.8M ID management contract

HP Enterprise Services has won a 10-year, $102.8 million contract from the Homeland Security Department to supply an identity management system.

The contract will help DHS as it continues to implement Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12. HSPD-12 directs how agencies issue and manage credentials used by government employees and contractors.

Under this contract, HP will provide infrastructure at DHS data centers, manage and install enrollment and issuance work stations and light activation stations. Currently, there are 405 workstations and 16,000 light activation stations, according to the contract’s statement of work.

HP will support DHS efforts to manage 300,000 personal identity verification, or PIV cards. The cards give contractors and government employees access to DHS facilities and networks.

The company will manage the transition from the current solution to the new system, and a goal of the agency is a seamless move from the old system to the new.

HP will be responsible for program management including identifying and monitoring interdependencies between task orders; managing escalated issues among the task orders that may compromise the program; and tracking how each task order contributes to the program benefits.

Some of the capabilities DHS is looking to either add or enhance include establishing workflows and integration with existing processes, performing identity proofing and validation, maintenance of digital identities, issuing and tracking of credentials and integration with the DHS personnel vetting process.

Other requirements include an uptime of 99 percent as measured on a monthly basis, the providing of secure interfaces, and integration with the exiting DHS patch management systems.

DHS also wants HP to allow for continuous monitoring and vulnerability scanning.
