NSTIC to introduce new round of pilot grants

Friday 11 January 2013 | 01:42 PM CET

The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) National Program Office has revealed plans to introduce a second round of pilot grants in the upcoming weeks of 2013.

According to a post on NSTIC blog, the set of grants will focus on piloting online identity solutions that embrace and advance the NSTIC vision and that test or demonstrate new solutions, models and frameworks that either do not exist or are not widely adopted in the market. The size of the round has not been established yet, full implementation of the program and issuance of awards will be subject to the availability of funds in the financial year 2013 budget. However, NSTIC anticipates that a Federal Funding Opportunity notice on how to apply for pilot project funding will be released by February 2013.

NSTIC pilot competition from 2011 has generated more than 180 proposals. NSTIC is a White House initiative to work collaboratively with the private sector, advocacy groups, public sector agencies and other organizations to upgrade the privacy, security and convenience of sensitive online transactions.
