Deal potentially valued at $195 million
L-1 Identity Solutions Inc. announced it was awarded a new contract to continue providing production systems for U.S. passports.
The indefinite quantity contract has a potential value of up to $195 million and was awarded by the Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs, Consular Systems and Technology Directorate to Trans Digital Technologies Corporation (TDT), a wholly owned subsidiary of L-1.
The new contract, a one year base and four option years, follows the completion of the previous contract agreement and encompasses ongoing support of the State Department in 22 domestic passport agencies and production centers through the continued use of the MP300US printing system. Additionally, TDT will provide security products, technical support, and maintenance needed to sustain U.S. passport production operations at all current and future passport facilities.
For more than a decade TDT has supported the State Department with the Toppan MP300US passport printing system as part of the Travel Documents Issuance System for the issuance of U.S. passport books.
