As of February 2, 2004 the Survey of Federal Smart Card Projects called SmartData has been updated to reflect the inputs from the Federal Smart Card Project Managers, and their information technology service providers. In order to make the survey more useful, it has been divided between Current and Archived Smart Card Projects. The Current Projects are those which are on-going either in Planning, or as Pilot or Operational Projects. Archived Smart Card Projects are those projects that have been completed, but are of interest historically. In addition, there are several projects currently in process of being surveyed, which will be added to this website as the survey is completed.

A great deal of effort has been placed into making sure this information is correct, but GSA and the Federal Smart Card Project Managers are dedicated to making and keeping this information accurate. If you know of projects that are not represented here, or information that is incorrect, please contact the Webmaster.

As part of the GSA smart card initiatives, the Office of Governmentwide Policy (OGP) attempts to identify various smart card projects and applications pursued by the Federal agencies to make the Government function more efficiently. This database is the result of the GSA Office of Government Policy 's initial survey of the Federal agencies originally conducted in July 1998, updated most recently in January 2004. The purpose of this database is for information sharing, identifying areas of interest, and sharing technology to promote the advancement of smart card projects among Federal agencies. Agency representatives should note that the smart card project and application in this database will be made available to individual project or application personnel for online updating.

We hope you will find this information useful and easy to use. It has been designed to give you quick access to an entire project overview at a glance. We are in the process of making sure that the SmartData portion of the website is 508 compliant. Please contact the Webmaster if you have any accessibility issues in the meantime. Thank you.

The following definitions are used to distinguish smart card project from smart card application.

  • A smart card project is defined as a development/implementation effort, within a Government agency.
  • A smart card application is defined as a subset of a smart card project addressed to one area of concern.
