Identity, Credential, and Access Management (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. To produce this document, gaps were discovered in publicly available documentation that affect an engineer’s ability to effectively implement an ICAM-enabled system. These gap analyses and assessments resulted in the development of this ICAM Acquisition Guidance document for State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial (SLTT) project managers and solution architects. This document includes draft acquisition language that could be used as “boilerplate” for ICAM acquisitions.
