S&T FRG ICAM Acquisition Guidance

The Public Safety Communications (PSC) Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) Working Group (WG) performed an assessment of available policy, procurement, grant, and other solicitation sources for ICAM procurement language across the Federal and State marketplace. This document provides guidance to the Public Safety Community (Community) to enhance existing infrastructure to include ICAM principles.

S&T FRG ICAM Executive Primer

The Public Safety Communications (PSC) Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) Working Group (WG) set out to create an Executive Primer for Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) principles for the Public Safety Community (Community). This document provides the educational background of ICAM for all levels of any organization (Executive Leadership, Project Managers and Solution Architects).

S&T FRG ICAM Common Appendices

The Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) Common Appendices includes definitions, acronyms, and normative references of commonly used ICAM terms. This document familiarizes readers with frequently used terms in ICAM which are used in other accompanying documents like the ICAM Executive Primer and Acquisition Guidance.


The public safety community has a limited ability to consistently and securely share information as needed, on demand, and as authorized at all levels across public safety disciplines. To address this capability gap, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) developed, in coordination with the public safety community, the Incident Management Information Sharing (IMIS) Capability Maturity Model (CMM) framework.


On August 1, 2013, the EO 13650 directed the federal government to improve the safety and security of chemical facilities and reduce the risks of hazardous chemicals to workers and communities.  Under this order, DHS undertook a number of actions, including establishment of the IP Gateway.
