Intercede announce the receipt of an initial progress order following new U.S. Department of State Contract Win

Intercede has this week announced the receipt of an initial progress order following a significant new contract win for its MyID® credential management software with the U.S. Department of State (DoS).

The new contract win follows Intercede’s involvement in a successful bid to create an innovative Identity Management System (IDMS) solution compliant with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) for the DoS and its customers.

Further details of the contract are available in a press release that has been issued by Guidehouse as the Prime Contractor:

The ten-year, multi-million pound contract will see MyID software issuing and managing the lifecycle of thousands of DoS employee digital identities as part of the agency’s next-generation identity management services (IDMS) implementation.

“We are delighted that MyID software will form the central element of the Department of State’s next-generation IDMS,” said Klaas van der Leest, Chief Executive Officer of Intercede.  “This contract win underlines the quality of our MyID software and its future in managing best in class digital identity solutions for security conscious organisations like the DoS. It also highlights the strength of our offering when working proactively with partners, following on from the recent launch of our Connect Partner Programme. Together with Guidehouse as the prime contractor, plus Appian Logic, Aware and CertiPath, we have an innovative solution that will meet the needs of the DoS now and over the next ten years.”

The Department of State joins fellow U.S. federal agencies including the Transportation Security Administration, Federal Aviation Administration and Social Security Administration who have also chosen MyID as their credential management software.
