Announcing Draft Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201-2, Personal Identity Verification of Federal Employees and Contractors Standard, Request for Comments, and Public Workshop on Draft FIPS 201-2
March 08, 2011

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) publishes this notice to request comments on Draft Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 201-2, “Personal Identity Verification of Federal Employees and Contractors Standard.” Draft FIPS 201-2 amends FIPS 201-1 and includes clarifications of existing text, removal of conflicting requirements, additional text to improve clarity, adaptation to changes in the environment since the publication of FIPS 201-1, and specific changes requested by Federal agencies and implementers. NIST has received numerous change requests, some of which, after analysis and coordination with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and United States Government (USG) stakeholders, are incorporated in the Draft FIPS 201-2. Before recommending FIPS 201-2 to the Secretary of Commerce for review and approval, NIST invites comments from the public concerning the proposed changes. NIST will hold a public workshop at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD to present the Draft FIPS 201-2. Please see admittance instructions in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below.
