Notice ID DOIGFBO220045
“Science Information Delivery (SID) wants a verification service as part of the America the Beautiful Senior Pass ordering process on the USGS Store (store.usgs.gov). This service would validate the customers’ legal name and verify they meet the Age requirements and U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident requirement. Science Information Delivery would like this service to be at the start of the ordering process. The customer visits the USGS Store and selects either the Lifetime Senior Pass or the Annual Senior Pass. After putting the Senior Pass into their shopping cart, they are routed to the 3rd party site (if necessary) where they add the necessary information to verify their eligibility (first name, middle name, last name, address, phone number, and last 4 of Social Security Number). The verification service takes just a few seconds and when the customer’s eligibility is verified they are returned to the USGS Store to complete their purchase. The 3rd party vendor also sends information proving validation back to the USGS Store. Those customers that cannot be verified are returned to the USGS Store where they are allowed to complete their purchase using previous methods.
We expect the vendor to verify the customer is 62 or older and that they are a U.S. Citizen or Legal Resident. We expect this process to be completed within 10 seconds so the customer can complete their order in the USGS Store. We also expect the vendor to return data points that prove eligibility so we can complete the order for the customer. Those customers that cannot be validated would be returned to the USGS Store.
The vendor should demonstrate that consumer data is secure and will not be utilized for any purpose other to verify eligibility for the Senior Pass. This includes both direct and indirect collected data.
It is expected that the vendor could verify a minimum 85% of customer’s eligibility requests.
Vendor and SID will coordinate system outages so proper notification to store visitors can be advertised on the USGS Store.
The solution should be compatible with the USGS Store which runs on Drupal...”
