The PIV Card ProjectThe PIV Card Pilot was successfully launched in October 2006 at the Veterans Affairs Central Office (VACO) in Washington D.C. The goal of the Pilot program was to integrate and execute a working plan for a common identification card system for Federal Employees and Contractors. The Pilot Program has provided the project team with experience and insight into process improvements, which will be incorporated into the production release. Through the experience gained in the Pilot Program, the production is expected to provide a robust system solution that is easily operated and maintained. The deployment phase for the PIV card system is scheduled to begin in June 2007 and run through September 2009.
