GAO: GSA, OMB Need to Bolster Management of Physical Access Control Systems

1 min read

The Government Accountability Office concluded in a report that the General Services Administration and the White House lack the effort to ensure identity security in federal facilities, Federal News Network reported Wednesday.

GAO noted in a report that it identified several issues on the physical access control systems that GSA and the White House's Office of Management and Budget control. These systems work to manage identity information of federal agency workers. Issues found in PACS include cost, lack of procurement clarity and technology integration difficulty with legacy systems.

GAO recommends OMB's director establish a baseline to guide the progress of meeting PACS requirements, and monitor corresponding developments.
