Digital Management Awarded Contract with the General Services Administration
Company Entrusted to Support the E-Authentication Federal Center of Excellence
Bethesda, MD—January 24, 2008—Digital Management, Inc. announced today that it has won a contract with the General Services Administration (GSA) to provide support for the E-Authentication Identity Federation Program.
The E-Authentication Identity Federation is a government-wide public-private partnership that permits individuals and organizations to access online government services using IDs issued by trusted third-parties, such as banks, credit card providers and other government agencies. The Federation program provides agencies a policy-compliant and standards-based framework for authentication and identity services that enable the reuse of identity credentials across government applications. Through the Federation, an American citizen is able to access government services online using a credential they already have from a service provider they trust, rather than having to create multiple user identities. To-date, the Federation has certified a suite of eight Credential Service Partners that issue, manage and verify the credentials for more than 75 applications at nearly 25 different Federal agencies.
The E-Authentication Solution Program Management Office (PMO) provides agencies with the technical assistance and operational support needed to function successfully within the Federation.
Under this new contract with GSA, Digital Management will be providing operations, customer service, systems security, and configuration support to the E-Authentication Solution PMO.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to work with GSA to support and expand trusted identity federation throughout the Federal government. E-Authentication is at the core of Government Transformation. It reduces the burden on agencies, streamlines business processes, and improves the customer experience with online applications across the government. This is a tremendous opportunity for us to demonstrate our technology, management, and customer service expertise in one of the cornerstone initiatives in e-Government”, said Jay Sunny Bajaj, CEO, Digital Management.
Digital Management’s new E-Authentication support contract affirmed GSA’s confidence in the company, which has been supporting the E-Authentication PMO continuously for over two years and the agency for nearly five years.
