Thank you to the agencies that provided updates. If your agency experiences a change in POCs outside of this annual cleanup effort, please contact the MSO at gsamso@gsa.gov so we can ensure our contact lists are up-to-date.

The MSO has been working on updates to the USAccess Program website, FedIDCard.gov, and the site will be undergoing a change in design in the next month. We want to assure customers that the website will retain the same functions and content, but users will notice a difference in its appearance and some content organization.

Keep an eye out for the new and improved website in the coming weeks. Please contact the MSO at gsamso@gsa.gov if you have any questions after or leading up to the change.

Reminder to Update Site Manager Regularly

It is important that agencies continually make an effort to keep their information in Site Manager up to date. This is especially important for the Site POC, Ship-To POC, and Site Ship-To Address. The MSO often sees packages deemed undeliverable because shipping information is incorrect or outdated.

Please help us ensure that cards are delivered in a timely manner by staying on top of this important information.

Security Tip - Handling Logical and Physical Access Problems

Physical Access Control Systems, or PACS, are systems that manage physical access into buildings and other control areas. For example, the system that is used to swipe your card to enter a secured room or that scans your credential before you enter a Federal building, is a PACS. Logical Access Control Systems, or LACS, are systems that manage network and computer access. For example, the system that allows you to insert your credential into your computer and provide a PIN to log in, is a LACS.
