L-1 lands New Jersey identity contract for secured licenses

STAMFORD, Conn., Feb 18, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- L-1 Identity Solutions, Inc. (ID 8.65, +0.09, +1.05%) , a leading provider of identity solutions and services, was awarded a seven-year contract by the State of New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission to provide a secure driver's license solution. The first year of the contract will include the ramp up and implementation of the new system and the remaining six years will consist of card production and equipment and software maintenance.

New Jersey is changing its pre-existing workflow process for driver's license issuance to incorporate photo-first capabilities as part of the State's effort to curb identity-related fraud. In addition, the State is implementing a secure card production solution as part of its over-the-counter system that will exceed the recommended standards set by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, making the cards compliant with proposed standards set forth in the REAL ID Act. :::MORE HERE:::
