Starting March 1, the White House Office of Management and Budget requires that agencies post quarterly updates on their public websites reporting how far along they are in issuing the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards that allow them to comply with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12. (The PDF for this order is located here.) As far as CSO knows, there has been no central clearinghouse publicly compiling information on how agencies are doing as a whole. Below, our best attempt to locate the websites and add up the numbers.DepartmentsNumber of employees requiring PIV cardsNumber of PIV cards issuedDepartment of Agriculture107,0007Department of Commerce44,2524Department of Defense (Has posted information on internal site, not publicly)n\/an\/aDepartment of Educationn\/an\/aDepartment of Energy13,6185Department of Housing and Urban Developmentn\/an\/aDepartment of Health and Human Servicesn\/an\/aDepartment of Homeland Securityn\/an\/aDepartment of Interior*64,33817Department of Justicen\/an\/aDepartment of Labor15,37811Department of State19,865915Department of Transportation52,9796Department of Treasury121,4615Department of Veterans Affairs241,000430Independent agencies\/boards, commissions and committeesNumber of employees requiring PIV cardsNumber of PIV cards issuedCommodity Futures Trading Commission4545Consumer Product Safety Commission4014Environmental Protection Agency 17,00014Equal Opportunity Employment Commission2,2001Federal Energy Regulatory Commission11Federal Communications Commission1,80011Federal Reserve Bank1,9752Federal Maritime Commission1212Federal Trade Commission1,0893General Services Administration*4,1105Merit Systems Protection Board2304National Aeronautics and Space Administration 18,7500National Archives 3,0153National Credit Union Administration9491National Science Foundation1,39031Nuclear Regulatory Commission 3,5001Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight2243TOTAL (for both departments and independent agencies)737,1001,491Based on data reported March 1. Last updated March 19, 2007.*Both the Department of Interior and the General Services Administration are acting as shared service providers and issuing cards for other agencies. The numbers listed above do not include cards those agencies have issued to other agences. For a complete list of cards\u00a0that the Department of Interior has issued, see this report posted by the Department of Interior National Business Center. In all, National Business Center reports that it has issued 46 of the 73,761 cards it is required to issue. We have not included those numbers above because there is some duplication where the agency also has posted its own report.
