Lockheed, General Dynamics partner on HSPD-12

General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin have partnered to offer Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 and first responder authentication card solutions to the federal government.

Representatives from both companies cited competitive pricing as the reason why they joined forces.

“At the core of this partnership is our belief that the government deserves the very best value for its dollar,” said Carlaine Blizzard, vice president of Secure Enterprise Solutions at Lockheed Martin Transportation and Security Solutions. “Our ability to tailor the implementation of our solution directly to the individual agencies allows us to offer them significant value at the most competitive price in the market.”

“Our customers now have access to twice the innovation, a deeper pool of experienced systems integrators, and a highly competitive solution that is available today to achieve the requirements laid out in HSPD-12 well before the Oct. 27 deadline,” said Scott Price, vice president of homeland security solutions at General Dynamics Information Technology. Under HSPD-12, agencies must begin providing interoperable personal identity verification cards to federal workers by that date.

Both companies were among the first to become approved HSPD-12 vendors by the General Services Administration. They are also offering their cards as First Responder Access Cards.
