The Office of Management and Budget is looking for proof that agencies are issuing new identity cards as directed under Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12
In a recent memo
, Karen Evans, OMB administrator of E-Government and IT, said agencies must electronically submit copies of the first HSPD-12-compliant ID card three days after it has been issued.
Under HSPD-12, agencies must begin producing the new cards today.
Agencies that are participating in shared-services programs offered by either the General Services Administration
or the Interior Department's National Business Center
are exempt from the memo, Evans said. Those agencies can have their shared-services provider send the cards instead.
After an agency sends the required information, OMB will confirm that the agency has met the deadline and promptly delete the e-mail because of privacy concerns, Evans said.
