Labor awards PIV card contract

The Labor Department has tapped Xtec Inc. of Miami to process and issue Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards to its employees and contractors as part of the agency's compliance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12.

In a notice, Labor said the contract is worth approximately $7.8 million.

Under the contract, Xtec, which qualified as an 'end-to-end' integrator for HSPD-12 services by the General Services Administration earlier this year, will take a phased approach to producing and issuing the cards, company officials said.

HSPD-12 requires agencies to begin issuing PIV cards by Oct. 27.

Labor awarded the contract after issuing a solicitation in early June.

'The solution we have integrated and demonstrated for the Department of Labor is able to be implemented in a short period of time allowing agencies to be compliant with the HSPD-12 deadline,' said Tom Murphy, Xtec's director of sales.
