DMDC agrees BPA with XTec


The US Department of Defense’s Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) has awarded XTec a five- year Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to supply DMDC cardstock, middleware and electromagnetic sleeves for smart cards to support the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Common Access Card (CAC) program. The BPA has a ceiling value of US$82 million.

XTec has partnered with Oberthur Technologies (OT), Gemalto and Giesecke & Devrient America (G&D), to provide smart cards that are compliant with the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 201 and all DoD requirements. “XTec has provided nearly 15 million smart cards to the federal government during the past 15 years,” says Kevin Kozlowski, XTec’s vice president of government initiatives. “That experience gives DoD an unparalleled level of assurance that XTec will continue to support DMDC and deliver the highest quality products and services, on time and within budget.”

XTec says it partnered with DMDC for the past five years supporting the DoD CAC program. Fulfillment of these task orders will allow DMDC to secure resources by using smart cards for government employees, contractors and military personnel while meeting DoD personnel identification requirements and moving to the Next Generation smart card.

Under the terms of this BPA, DMDC may also use XTec’s middleware bundle, AuthentXware, as well as related licensing and support. AuthentXware is approved by General Services Administration as a FIPS 201 compliant product.

XTec has delivered Personal Identity Verification (PIV) smart cards, card products and high security identity card services to US Federal Government Agencies including: Department of Homeland Security, General Services Administration Managed Service Office (USAccess Program), National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Federal Aviation Administration, US Courts, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Labor, Department of Health and Human Services and Department of State.
