GSA put data at risk mishandling 15,000 contract employee access cards

The report says the agency was unable to account for about 15,000 identity cards issued to contract employees and failed to recover 445 such cards from those who failed their background checks. The audit was performed because OIG had lingering concerns from a 2016 evaluation about how GSA collects and destroys PIV cards. Dave Nyczepir has more.
