IDEMIA to Provide Identity Services to USPS
IDEMIA has announced that its national security solutions affiliate will provide the U.S. Postal Service and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service with a portfolio of identity services. The company will support USPS' five-year strategic plan to connect the public to essential e-government services.
“This announcement signals USPS's commitment to enabling its people, presence and prestige to better meet the needs of the American public in an increasingly digital world,” said IDEMIA NSS CEO Andrew Boyd, a Potomac Officers Club member.
The partnership will provide access to identity verification services such as biometric capture and in-person proofing capabilities at Post Office locations, IDEMIA said Tuesday.
IDEMIA said the award will help the Postal Service make better use of its nationwide retail network and information infrastructure.
The partnership brings broader access to biometric capture and in-person proofing services that will help the Postal Service better serve federal agencies and the American public, IDEMIA said.
“We are delighted to partner with USPS to help bring their vision forward, and to leverage USPS's broad infrastructure to offer the American people greater access to identity verification and assurance solutions,” Boyd added.

The privately held company offers augmented identity for international clients from the financial, telecommunications, identity, public security and internet of things sectors.
