Conn. company awarded TWIC subcontract, drops complaint
Integrated Biometric Technology (IBT), a subsidiary of Stamford, Conn.-based L-1 Identity Solutions, has been awarded a subcontract from Lockheed Martin to provide equipment and enrollment services on the Transportation Worker Identification Credential program.
As a result of the subcontract, IBT has agreed to withdraw a protest it had filed in February over the Transportation Security Administration’s decision to award the $69.5 million TWIC contract to Lockheed Martin Corp.
“We look forward to contributing to this important national security program,” said Robert V. LaPenta, L-1 Identity Solutions chairman, president and chief executive officer.
The TWIC program provides tamper-resistant biometric credentials to maritime workers requiring unescorted access to secure areas of port facilities, outer continental shelf facilities, and vessels regulated under the Maritime Transportation Security Act.
