Identity Management System (IDMS)

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is required to meet the compliance requirements under Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors, which directs the implementation of a standardized badging process for processing and issuing credentials for Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards and identification (ID) badges. To address the requirements, the FAA Office of Security Hazardous Materials Safety (ASH) created the Identity Management System (IDMS). 

The FAA is publishing the IDMS Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) pursuant to Section 208 of the E-Government Act of 2002 because this application collects and stores personally identifiable information (PII) from members of the public, such as non-employees that need access to a FAA facility and are in the process of receiving a PIV card including FAA employees/contractors that manage the IDMS system or are new employees/contractors that are being issued a PIV card.

DOT is committed to ensuring that information is available in appropriate alternative formats to meet the requirements of persons who have a disability. If you require an alternative version of files provided on this page, please contact
