DHS adds 10 years to deal for smart cards

The Homeland Security Department has awarded a 10-year, $200 million follow-on contract to an existing five-year identification card deal.

Datatrac Information Services Inc. will continue to provide services to the department under the Integrated Card Production System contract.

The Richardson, Texas, company has produced several million permanent resident cards, border crossing cards and employment authorization documents for the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS), the former Immigration and Naturalization Service.

The contract's base period is one year, with nine option years, said Dennis M. Priscandaro, program manager for Datatrac.
