GSA names smart-card team

The General Services Administration has awarded contracts to five companies under its governmentwide Smart Access Common ID Program, which aims to build a common agency infrastructure for multimedia smart cards.

Prime contracts went to KPMG Peat Marwick of New York, Litton PRC Inc., Electronic Data Systems Corp., 3-G International Inc. of Springfield, Va., and Logicon Inc. of Herndon, Va. Each company has teams of subcontractors to produce the interoperable, multiapplication smart cards.

Possible uses for the cards include identification, authentication, purchasing, and user access to buildings and systems.

All the contractors can bid on agencies' task orders. The contracts, which have a total estimated value of $1.5 billion, have a two-year base and two four-year options.
