DHS releases $100M ID management RFP

Proposals are due July 1

The Homeland Security Department has set the clocking ticking on a $100 million contract to provide identity management products and services to the agency.

The request for proposals sets a deadline of July 1 for the 10-year contract being let through the DHS Office of the Chief Security Officer. The contract has a $99.5 million ceiling.

The department has a requirement for an identity management system to continue the implementation of Homeland Security Presidential Directive – 12 and meet the needs of the department, according to the FedBizOpps website. More information can be found here.

Known as HSPD-12, the directive sets the standard for identity cards and systems used by agencies to give employees and contractors access to computer networks and facilities across the country. 

Questions and comments may be directed to the primary point of contact, Elizabeth Walsh, at elizabeth.walsh@hq.dhs.gov, or by phone at (202)-447-0197.
