The U.S. State Department wants to gather technical and capabilities information from prospective vendors that can provide the hardware, equipment, maintenance and, possibly, the printing of many thousands of credit-card-sized Passport Cards and Border Crossing Cards that can be used as alternatives to traditional book-style U.S. passports.
These cards have been used at land and sea-ports of entry into the United States since 2009, according to a special notice published by the State Department’s office of consular systems and technology services on May 8.
The notice was for a “full and open” request for information (RFI), says the notice, and does not commit the State Department to any specific future procurement.
