General Dynamics will continue to maintain card production facility in Corbin, KY, for USCIS

U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) has awarded a contract worth as much as $5.5 million to the incumbent vendor, General Dynamics Information Technology, to continue to maintain the production facility in Corbin, KY, that manufactures each year millions of permanent resident cards (known as “Green Cards”) and Employment Authorization Document cards.

GD is responsible for what is called the Card Personalization System Technology Refreshment, or CPSTR, for the document production division of USCIS.

“The CPSTR system is a complex card identification system that is integrated with several USCIS information technology systems to receive data, personalize and issue cards, and provide system feedback regarding completion and mailing of the card,” says a justification and approval document that explains why USCIS plans to award a sole source contract to GD. The document says no other firm is capable of providing the full array of maintenance capabilities required.

The system includes data processing, laser etching and robotic technologies which help produce the cards that serve as proof of immigration status and provide benefits for millions of people.

GD Information Technology is currently under an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, which was originally awarded to the company on a competitive basis.

USCIS envisions a one-year base period plus three six-month option periods. The value of the contract can range between $2.2 million and $5.5 million, the notice indicates.
