NBC issues new ID cards before HSPD-12 deadline

The Interior Department's National Business Center said it began on Thursday issuing new identification cards that comply with Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12'one day before the Oct. 27 deadline.

NBC, an HSPD-12 shared-services provider for 16 agencies, said it issued its first card to Lynn Scarlett, Interior deputy secretary, at the South Interior Building in Washington, D.C., and a handful of other Interior executives also received their cards this morning.

Under HSPD-12, agencies must have the capability to issue the new ID cards by Oct. 27. The General Services Administration, acting as an SSP for 38 agencies, began enrolling customers and issuing new cards Tuesday.

For NBC, Thursday's event marked a quick turnaround for the agency as it only awarded a contract for HSPD-12 products and services to IBM Corp. and Lockheed Martin Corp. earlier this month.

The contract provides support services and technical implementations for HSPD-12 services, NBC said.
