GSA lists FIPS vendors

The General Services Administration is combing the Federal Supply Service's IT schedule for smart-card vendors whose products and services meet a new governmentwide standard.

To help agencies comply with the Federal Information Processing Standard personal identity verification (PIV) requirements, GSA will set up a program management office and place compliant components under a Special Item Number on Schedule 70.

A draft of the Identity Management handbook is being released to help agencies implement the new standard. Office of Management and Budget guidance and a PIV implementation plan template will be available in the next few weeks.
