Treasury employees to get smart cards

About 9,000 Treasury Department employees will be issued smart cards this fall.

The General Services Administration's Federal Technology Service last month awarded a $1.4 million task order to Maximus Inc. of Reston, Va., for Electronic Treasury Enterprise Cards under its Smart Access Card Common ID contract.

Employees of the Secret Service, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, IRS and Treasury departmental offices will get cards to govern both physical and logical access, GSA officials said.

The cards will contain integrated circuit chips and antennas, and biometric and public-key infrastructure technology.
