U.S. General Services Administration Selects HP to Support Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 Program
PALO ALTO, Calif. - HP today announced that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has selected HP Enterprise Services to support the GSA Managed Service Office (MSO) in managing the identities of more than 500,000 federal employees and contractors at more than 90 federal agencies, commissions and boards.
The new one-year contract, which includes two one-year option periods, is valued at up to $47 million if all options are exercised.
The GSA MSO USAccess program is a major provider of Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials to federal agencies. In addition to federal agencies that provide their own PIV credentials, the GSA MSO and HP will deliver identity credentials needed to help secure federal facilities, systems and applications as part of the government-wide Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 (HSPD-12) program.
As part of the agreement, the GSA MSO has implemented the HP Assured Identity solution. This enables the USAccess program to provide agencies with the key components to manage the full life cycle of a PIV credential by simplifying the process of sponsoring, enrolling, adjudicating and credentialing applicants. PIV credentials issued under the USAccess program are secure and reliable, and comply with government-established HSPD-12 standards.
“Protecting government facilities and information system assets is critical to national security,” said Keith Blodgett, vice president, Leveraged Delivery and Enterprise Clients, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services. “HP will continue to provide and manage the HSPD-12 identity credentials necessary to help secure these vitally important assets.”
In a world of continuous connectivity, HP enables agencies to become Instant-On Governments with technology, security and innovation embedded throughout their organizations to deliver immediate services to citizens and clients.
