Stanley wins $570M passport services deal

Stanley Inc. will continue to provide services related to issuing passports for the State Department under a new five-year, $570 million contract.

The contract is with the department's Bureau of Consular Affairs/Passport Services Directorate. The services Stanley will provide include:
  • Production, operational and business process support training.
  • Procurement, administration and evaluation of supplies.
  • Facilities management support at the four passport centers and 14 passport agencies nationwide, along with the headquarters support offices.

The State Department produced more than 18 million U.S. passports in the past year. Passport production for 2008 is estimated to be significantly higher, due primarily to increased demand as a result of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.

Stanley began construction last year of a secure passport production center in Tucson, Ariz., which is expected to begin operations this spring. The Tucson Passport Center and an existing facility in Hot Springs, Ark., which opened in March 2007, were authorized under a 10-year State Department contract in October 2006, initially valued at $164 million. Stanley oversees operations and the printing, quality control and mailing of U.S. passports and other travel documents at these locations.

The company began its relationship with State in 1992 when it assisted in establishing the National Passport Center in Portsmouth, N.H. Since that time, Stanley has expanded its services to support passport operations at all 18 locations nationwide.

Stanley of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 50 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
