Description:Under Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), federal agencies are required to comply with a standard for identification issued to Federal employees and contractors known as FIPS-201 Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors. In order to comply with the directive and issue the new federal credential to contractor personnel, the DOL must collect certain data required for the creation of an applicant record in its Personal Identity Verification II (PIV-II) system and for issuance of the PIV-II badge.

The information will be used to determine suitability for the issuance of DOL credentials. The information will be used to identity proof and register applicants as part of the Personal Identity Verification process. Providing this information is voluntary; however, failure to submit this information may result in denial of a DOL credential. Without this form, DOL contractors are not reviewed with the same rigor applied to its Federal staff with respect to HSPD-12/PIV-II credentialing standards.
