SUBJECT:    Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 Policy
 
 
1.    PURPOSE.  This Directive sets policies and defines responsibilities for Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) compliance in the Department of the Treasury.  This Directive also authorizes the issuance of Treasury Directive Publication (TD P) 71-12, “Treasury Guide for Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12”, relating to identity management.
 
2.    SCOPE.  This Directive applies to all bureaus, offices, and organizations in the Department of the Treasury, including the offices of Inspectors General within the Department.  The provisions of this Directive shall not be construed to interfere with or impede the authorities or independence of the Department’s Inspectors General.
 
3.    POLICY.  It is the policy of the Department that all Treasury Offices and Bureaus:
 
      a.    Ensure the security and safety of all Treasury facilities, information systems and their occupants and users, by verifying that all persons entering Treasury facilities and using Federal information resources are authorized to do so;
 
      b.    Obtain Personal Identity Verification (PIV) II compliance through the use of an approved service provider designated by the department.  The  service provider will produce compliant and interoperable Federal credentials.  The solution  will meet all applicable Federal standards and requirements for PIV II, including an official accreditation process;
 
      c.    Shall use an accredited PIV process for individuals who require physical access to federally controlled government facilities or leased space for six months and longer or any electronic access to government information systems;
 
      d.    Ensure Treasury’s PIV credentials be interoperable among Treasury Bureaus.  Treasury Bureaus shall accept only valid activated government-issued PIV credentials.  Procedures will be in place to support authorized physical and logical access for Treasury PIV credential holders;
 
      e.    Ensure proper guidelines are followed in cases of lost or stolen PIV credentials;
 
      f.    Maintain proper procedures for Special PIV credential designations such as those for Federal Emergency Response Officials and Weapons Carriers;

      a.    The Deputy Assistant Secretary for Departmental Offices Operations, Heads of Bureaus, and the offices of Inspectors General within the Department, as it relates to their respective bureaus and offices, shall:
 
            1)    designate role administrators within the bureaus to assign proper PIV role holders within their respective bureaus;
 
            2)    comply with HSPD-12 related directives such as National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201-1, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memoranda such as OMB M-05-24, M-08-01, and M-11-11 which provide guidance for implementing HSPD-12; including the following:
 
                  a)    All new systems under development must be enabled to use PIV credentials, in accordance with NIST guidelines, prior to being made operational.
 
                  b)    Existing physical and logical access control systems must be upgraded to use PIV credentials, in accordance with NIST guidelines, prior to the agency using development and technology refresh funds to complete other activities.
 
                  c)    Procurements for services and products involving facility or system access control must be in accordance with HSPD-12 policy and the Federal Acquisition Regulation.  In order to ensure government-wide interoperability, OMB Memorandum 06-18, “Acquisition of Products and Services for Implementation of HSPD-12” requires agencies to acquire products and services that are approved as compliant with Federal policy, standards and supporting technical specifications.
