The NSTIC 2013 Pilot Opportunity Has Launched!

The NSTIC National Program Office is pleased to announce the kickoff of a second round of NSTIC pilot projects – providing another opportunity for stakeholders to support the President’s strategy to improve the privacy, security, and convenience of online transactions through innovation in the emerging Identity Ecosystem.  The new Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) announcement has been posted; for details, click here. Pilots have been an integral part of the NSTIC implementation plan, with NIST looking to fund pilot solutions that can demonstrate material advances in identity and authentication and build a stronger foundation for the Identity Ecosystem.  The NSTIC 2013 pilot funding opportunity builds on last year’s successful launch of five NSTIC pilot projects, which were awarded over $9 million in funding.  For those joining us in Phoenix for the upcoming IDESG Plenary, we hope you will join us on February 5 at 10am MST for an Applicants’ Conference to learn more about this opportunity.  The Applicant's Conference will be broadcast here. NPO staff will be on hand to review the FFO and take questions. We were thrilled by the overwhelming show of interest in the NSTIC Pilots opportunity last year, as well as the wide array of innovative ideas that were submitted.  We look forward to reviewing your proposals! - The NSTIC National Program Office
