White House Gets Tough On ID Card Reader Requirements

February 8, 2011

Nextgov.com reported that beginning Oct. 1, the White House will penalize agencies that fail to outfit facilities and information technology systems with electronic identity card readers by withholding funds for other programs, according to a new White House memo.

Federal employees and contractors are required to carry ID badges embedded with digital fingerprints and photos to access federal buildings and networks, under the 2004 Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12. But agencies have long struggled to employ the electronic features of the badges.

The Feb. 3 Office of Management and Budget guidance directs agency heads to submit implementation policies by March 31 on required uses of the smart cards, and stipulates that funds be frozen at offices that do not follow the rules. The memo stops short of restricting bonuses and awards at agencies that have not fully complied with HSPD-12, a penalty that the nonprofit Center for Strategic and International Studies recommended during the presidential transition.
