The group, composed of ESO, OSY, and BOO staff, is recognized for successfully implementing electronic scanning of NIST PIV and site badges at all NIST Gaithersburg-campus entrance gates. The project team not only provided a wireless scanning solution that met NIST needs but also developed and implemented a plan that incorporated traffic control, staffing, and communications. Furthermore, the electronic badging initiative strengthens safety and security on the Gaithersburg campus to protect NIST’s world-class science mission. It is also in alignment with the Interagency Security Committee’s risk management process to safeguard federal facilities.
