Government Reference Publication

Executive Summary: Agencies of the United States Federal Government are pervasive users of physical access control systems (PACS). Across the country and around the globe, government employees, civilian contractors, and visitors require access to secured facilities under the control of federal agencies. To date, agencies have procured full systems and system components with little or no central guidance. This has resulted in cost inefficiency and technical incompatibility. Efforts including the GSA?s Government Smart Card Interoperability Specification (GSC-IS) and the Department of Defense?s mandate that gave birth to the Common Access Card (CAC) laid the foundation to rectify this situation. With a common credential comes the opportunity to promote interoperability between PACS across agencies. It was determined that the procurement of PACS and components requires a standardized approach to ensure that agencies deploy equipment that meet both their specific needs and, at the same time, facilitate cross-agency interoperability. The Physical Access Interagency Interoperability Working Group (PAIIWG) within the Government Smart Card Interagency Advisory Board (GSC-IAB) is charged with creating and documenting guidance for such an approach.
