The United States Postal Service is requesting quote for the Identification for Postal Access and Security Standardization (iPass) Card Initiative
Today, the United States Postal Service (USPS) does not have uniform identification card requirements across facilities. Many employees require multiple access cards for different facilities, and districts have different policies regarding employee identification card design, purpose, and type of information stored. As a result, the United States Postal Service (“Postal Service”) has initiated the Identification for Postal Access and Security Standardization (iPass) program to issue a uniform identification card for all career employees in order to improve the management of employee identification and facility security.
The purpose of this Request for Quotation (RFQ) is to receive pricing for a minimum of 700,000 uniform identification (ID) cards following specific United States Postal Service (“Postal Service”) topology and technology requirements. Of the 700,000 cards, only 200,000 will have specific technical requirements regarding a proximity antenna.
All Postal Service career employees will be issued a uniform identification and access card that may be interoperable with Postal Service physical access control systems (PACS) depending on the PACS type. It will be the official identification of the Postal Service and allow for entry to all Postal Service facilities (based on an employee’s access needs). Specifically, this procurement is for approximately 700,000 non-personalized stock cards and their delivery to the USPS.
