Follows recent GSA report showing Login.gov misled agencies
WASHINGTON—Subcommittee on Government Operations and the Federal Workforce Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas) will hold a hearing titled “Login.gov Doesn’t Meet the Standard.” The hearing will examine the technical and operational capabilities of Login.gov, a sign-on service provided by the General Services Administration’s (GSA) Technology Transformation Services, in addition to a recent report by GSA Office of Inspector General that Login.gov misled customer agencies about services.
“Identity verification services are critical to combat waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal government. Login.gov, a sign-on identity verification service provided by GSA’s Technology Transformation Services, has fallen short of its mission. Login.gov misled federal agencies and state, local, and territorial governments that trusted it to provide identity proofing services. That is unacceptable. If leaders within the GSA are unable and unwilling to exercise adequate oversight of Technology Transformation Services and the services it provides, then the Oversight Committee stands ready to do so,” said Subcommittee Chairman Sessions.
