ICAM Subcommittee (ICAMSC)

The ICAMSC is the principal interagency forum for identity management, secure access, authentication, authorization, credentials, privileges, and access lifecycle management. It’s a sub-committee of the Federal CIO Council’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Council.


Align the identity management activities of the Federal Government, and support collaborative government-wide efforts to:

  • Increase agency flexibility in addressing ICAM challenges;
  • Coordinate interagency efforts to meet agency mission needs;
  • Identify gaps in policies, procedures, standards, guidance, and services; and
  • Align the direction of ICAM policies and compliance with other cybersecurity initiatives.


  • Address Agency Challenges: provides opportunities for agencies to raise issues and challenges associated with the planning, implementation, and operations of ICAM programs and solutions.
  • Develop Policy Recommendations: recommends new ICAM policies and updates existing ones.
  • Provide Flexible Tools for ICAM Programs: develops specific tools to assist agencies ability to meet ICAM policy objectives and overcome identified ICAM implementation challenges.
  • Facilitate Communications and Information Sharing: acts as a vehicle for cross-government collaboration on information sharing, lessons learned, and best practices related to ICAM.


ICAMSC is co-chaired by GSA and DoD. Membership is open to federal agency employees only and you must have a .gov or .mil email address. FOUO Contractors are permitted to join on a case-by-case basis.
