SI International Inc. of Reston, Va., joins a growing list of companies named as qualified systems service providers for Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) by the General Services Administration.
Under HSPD-12, federal employees and contractors will be issued smart cards for identification and credentialing. The designation authorizes SI to provide card management and production, enrollment, and integration solutions.
"SI International has a proven record in providing large scale, secure identification credentials and identity systems to federal agencies," Mike Becraft, the company's executive vice president of mission services group, said in a news release. "We believe our skills and experience will prove helpful as agencies look for support with their HSPD-12 implementation programs."
With about 4,300 employees and revenues of $398 million last year, SI is ranked No. 40
on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100
list of the largest 100 federal contractors.
Other companies that have announced their qualification by GSA for HSPD-12 service contracts in recent weeks include BearingPoint Inc. of McLean, Va. ( No. 23
); Lockheed-Martin Corp. of Bethesda, Md. (No. 1
); WidePoint Corp. of Fairfax, Va. and XTec Inc. of Reston, Va., according to news releases.
