CHANTILLY, VA, Feb. 13, 2019 — Citizant, a leading provider of IT modernization and program management services to the U.S. government, was selected by the IRS to continue supporting the bureau’s HSPD-12 requirements nationwide.
The $12 million, 3-year HSPD-12 support task order was issued after full-and-open competition on the General Services Administration’s IT Schedule 70.
Citizant’s IRS HSPD-12 team has specialists in 26 states and Puerto Rico. The company has supported the IRS HSPD-12 mission requirement since 2012. With Citizant’s support in FY2018, the IRS Identity Credential and Access Management (ICAM) group processed more than 30,000 biometric identity card renewals – part of cyclical renewal surges that occur every 12 years. Citizant’s team supported this renewal surge on top of the standard estimated load of 9,500 rekeys of access credentials and 5,100 badge renewals in FY2018.
“We are honored that the IRS has selected Citizant to continue providing this essential service in support of HSPD-12,” said Alba M. Alemán, CEO of Citizant. “Our specialists collaborate with IRS security, facilities, and IT teams to help IRS employees and contractors gain access to systems and facilities as quickly as possible.”
Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) was issued in 2004 to establish policies for a common identification standard for Federal employees and contractors, with the goal of protecting U.S. government facilities and systems.
