The Federal Identity Credentialing Committee (FICC) is composed representatives from the major Federal agencies and departments. Its purpose is to assist agencies engaged in implementing government-wide identity management mandates. Members of the FICC also champion these activities at the agencies they represent.
The FICC provides a focal point for the implementation of the component, including support of migration to a shared service concept endorsed as part of the Federal Enterprise Architecture. The FICC identifies and resolves Federal identity credentialing technical and business issues and recommends solutions for interoperability issues. The FICC will continue to track and assess the Federal government's progress toward full implementation of the Standard and will act as a focal point for identifying issues and developing solutions.
