The General Services Administration’s Technology Transformation Service recently posted a multi-award contract for their login.gov domain, which aims to provide the public with “secure and private online access to participating government programs” through a single account.
According to the solicitation, TTS is looking for contractors that can provide one or more of the following identity proofing services:
- Identity resolution
- Address verification
- Account verification
- Behavioral analytics
- Government ID verification services
The contract is a blanket purchase agreement and will last 12 months from the date of award with the option to extend the ordering period for 12 months up to four times.
Login.gov was launched by GSA’s 18F in early April 2017. According to an August 2017 press release, the site is currently “in action” at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection Agency.
“Right now, it’s being used for the CBP Jobs App, which allows candidates to see the status of their progress as they’re moving through the recruitment and hiring pipeline. Logging into this system was previously so cumbersome that some candidates dropped out,” the release said.
GSA has also released the code and support documentation for the project as open source, in the hopes of getting security and technology expert feedback.
Responses to the contract solicitation are due Jan. 18, 2018 at 3 p.m. ET.
