The Transportation Security Administration is readying a pilot to test several types of biometric devices at 20 U.S. airports. The agency plans to release a request for proposals as early as next week for systems integrators, pending a final legal review, said Rick Lazarick, program manager for TSA's Airport Access Control Pilot Program.

    TSA will issue a request for information today asking vendors on the National Institutes of Health's Chief Information Officer Solutions & Partners 2 Innovations contract to present their biometric technology.

    Both task orders will be awarded through the CIO-SP2i contract vehicle.
