Social Security Administration deploys RFID for IT asset tracking

The cash-strapped Social Security Administration is turning to RFID to track rack-mounted IT assets at its National Computing Center (NCC) in Woodlawn, Md. It’s expected that the RFID solution will reduce inventory cycle times by a factor of 10X, while improving overall inventory accuracy by as much as 20 percent.

The contract for the software-based passive RFID solution was awarded on Sept. 11, 2012. The RFID system, deployed by RFID Global Solution and CodeSource, will provide real-time visual, audio, and e-mail/text alerts if IT assets containing sensitive information are removed from the data center.

The NCC houses computer operations essential to the prompt and accurate payment of benefits to Americans.

SSA will primarily use the RFID system to automate inventory and audit cycles for rack-mounted IT assets. RFID Global Solution’s Visi-Trac web-based software application for IT asset tracking is the backbone of the end-to-end solution being installed at the NCC facility in Woodlawn.

The solution is expected to lead to much-needed labor savings for the SSA, which has reduced its operating hours twice in the last 14 months to save on labor costs. According to the Federal Times, all 1,233 SSA field offices will close 30 minutes earlier beginning in November.

According to published reports, the NCC stores 460 million records of earnings and benefits for 57 million Social Security beneficiaries.
