Personal Identity Verification Credentials

On August 27, 2004, President Bush issued Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12, which required the development of a standard that all Federal agencies must use to identify its employees and contractors. The purpose in establishing this standard is to protect Federal facilities from threats of terrorism.

FCA has fully met the requirement of completing background checks on all current employees and contractors, and it has issued personal identity verification (PIV) credentials to all necessary personnel. See FCA’s quarterly report (PDF, 2 pages, 57 KB) on the number of PIV credentials issued by the Agency.
