The National Gallery of Art (NGA) has a requirement for a Personal Identity Verification (PIV) system which complies with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12). The system must be compliant with Federal Information Processing Standard 201 (FIPS 201) and all National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publications (see attached list).
The Gallery intends to issue a solicitation to potential providers who have appropriate GSA Schedule Contracts. As part of a market survey of available products and services, the Gallery is offering all interested firms (including those not on GSA Schedule) an opportunity to present their product overviews to Gallery personnel.
This is not a solicitation for proposals. There will be no compensation for the presentation. Though we intend to develop an RFP to solicit proposals, there is no guarantee that a solicitation will result from this market survey.
We will allow approximately one hour for the presentation, including a question and answer session. We ask that firms limit their overviews to ten or fifteen minutes in order to focus on answers to the attached list of questions, some of which are technical in nature. We encourage firms to bring technical representatives to the presentation, so that they can address questions about the product and its implementation.
