HID Global wins five-year, $88.3 million contract to supply U.S. government with next-generation permanent resident cards
Secure identity solution provider HID Global has received an order to redesign, manufacture and supply the U.S. Government Permanent Resident Card, or “Green Card”. The $88.3 million contract is the company’s largest government contract to date, extending a nearly two-decade relationship for another five years.
The agreement includes the manufacture and supply of additional government documents that will be enhanced with RFID technology for improved fraud protection.
“We are proud of our long-standing relationship with the U.S. government and are committed to delivering a new generation of the U.S. Green Card along with new high-security employment documents for them in the years to come,” said Rob Haslam, vice president of Government ID Solutions with HID Global. “This contract award proves anew that HID Global has been and will continue to be the country’s preeminent supplier of secure government ID document solutions through four successive generations of U.S. Green Cards and beyond.”
HID Global is responsible for the secure production, delivery and storage of up to 34 million identity cards over the next five years.
HID Global will also play a pivotal role in helping to upgrade today’s U.S. Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) by supplying cards featuring RFID technology and new, fraud-resistant security features. These advanced documents, which serve as evidence of authorization to be employed in the United States, will be issued to individuals as they apply for new, renewal or replacement PRC and EAD cards.
