The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) selected a team led by Lockheed Martin to provide services for the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Phase IV program under a task order-based contracting vehicle. Developed in response to vulnerabilities within the nation's transportation system, the TWIC program involves the rapid, nationwide deployment of biometric identification cards.
Under the awarded task order, Lockheed Martin will enroll and credential approximately 750,000 maritime workers at the nation's ports within 16 months, with 1.1 million port worker enrollments anticipated by TSA over the five-year contract period of performance. The TWIC Phase IV program may be expanded beyond the port community to other modes of transportation with a maximum of 6 million credentials to be issued under the Phase IV contract. Workers enrolled through this initial task order will be charged a fee of $137.25.
