SSA seeks another piece for its HSPD-12 solution

The Social Security Administration is putting the pieces together as it tries to meet the upcoming Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 requirement to begin issuing Personal Identity Verification cards by Oct. 27.

After recently securing a contract with Probaris Technologies Inc. of Philadelphia for an HSPD-12 identity management system and issuing a solicitation for 100,000 PIV cards, the agency released a task order Thursday for a card management system.

In the notice, SSA said the winning bidder will provide and integrate a management system that will interface with the Probaris software and manage issuance and printing of a PIV card and associated public-key infrastructure certificates.

Additionally, the CMS must provide the full lifecycle management of PIV cards including:
  • issuance
  • printing
  • renewal
  • replacement and
  • revocation.

HSPD-12 requires agencies to begin issuing PIV cards in at least one location by Oct. 27 for new employees and contractors.
