Guidehouse has been awarded a ten-year contract with the U.S. Department of State (DOS) to create an innovative Identity Management System and Credential Management System (IDMS) solution, the company reported on Wednesday.
“As a long-standing partner and trusted advisor to the DOS, we are honored to lead this important effort for the agency,” said Scott McIntyre, CEO of Guidehouse and winner of the 2020 Wash100 Award Popular Vote. “With our unique approach combining best-in-class National Security and Advanced Solutions expertise we have assembled a strong team and innovative solution to help them in this exciting initiative.”
Guidehouse’s system will be compliant with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) for the Department and its customers. The company will utilize its expertise in National Security and Advanced Solutions to provide identity management strategy, project management, training and user support and quality and risk management services to the DoS.
