AT&T takes third ACES pact

The General Services Administration has awarded a third digital certificate contract, to AT&T Corp., under the Federal Technology Service's Access Certificates for Electronic Services program.

Judith A. Spencer, ACES project manager and director of FTS' Center for Governmentwide Security, said negotiations with other vendors are continuing. GSA already awarded contracts to Digital Signature Trust of Salt Lake City and Operational Research Consultants Inc. of Chesapeake, Va.

Through ACES, vendors must meet the pricing schedule proposed by Digital Signature Trust. The per-certificate price drops as certificate volume increases. Digital Signature Trust proposed prices ranging from 40 cents to $1.20 per certificate.
