Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 173 / Thursday, September 8, 2005 / Notices Requirements,’’ and 5.3.1 of FIPS 201, ‘‘PIV Card Issuance,’’ are being revised to assure that they are consistent with the OMB guidance concerning National Agency Checks as part of the identity proofing and registration process. Therefore, NIST has prepared changes to FIPS 201 to clarify the identity proofing and registration process that departments and agencies should follow when issuing identity credentials. In short, under the proposed FIPS revision if an agency does not receive the results of the National Agency Checks (NAC) within five days, the identity credential can be issued based on the FBI National Criminal History Check (fingerprint check). Identity credentials issued to individuals without a completed NAC or equivalent must be electronically distinguishable from identity credentials issued to individuals who have a completed investigation. Director Bolten’s Memorandum is available electronically from the OMB Web page: http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/ memoranda/index.html. The proposed changes to FIPS Publication 201 are available electronically from the NIST Web site at: http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/. Authority: In accordance with the Information Technology Management Reform Act of 1996 (Public Law 104–106) and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) of 2002 (Public Law 107–347), the Secretary of Commerce is authorized to approve Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12, Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors, dated August 27, 2004, directed the Secretary of Commerce to promulgate, by February 27, 2005, a Government-wide standard for secure and reliable forms of identification to be issued to Federal Government employees and contractors.
