Requesting a Digital ID

Spuzzle1.jpgtep One – Registering with the DOE's Management Information System (MIS)

Before you request a DOE Digital Identity, you must register in DOE’s Management Information System (MIS). Please note that DOE Federal employees are already registered and do not need to complete this step. The may skip to step two.

During the registration process, you will be required to select a DOE sponsor. Your sponsor is the DOE employee who certifies that you have a valid need for a DOE Digital Identity. For contractors, this person is likely your Contract Task Manager, Contracting Officer's Representative (COR), or Contracting Officer's Technical Representative (COTR).

To register:

You MUST include the following in the “Comments” section at the end of the form:

  • Indicate you are requesting a DOE Digital Identity
  • Provide your sponsor's contact information:
    • Name
    • Phone Number
    • Business Email Address
    • DOE Site Name (i.e. Headquarters, name of DOE Lab or Field Site)

You will be notified by email when your DOE federal sponsor has approved your MIS request.  Note: Please establish security questions as soon as you receive your MIS login credentials. 

Step Two – Meeting the Identity Proofing Requirement

  • Obtain a copy of the Subcriber Agreement Form (SAF) here:  
  • Complete the blue box portion of the SAF
  • Provide the completed SAF to a DOE Trusted Agent who will verify your identity and complete an additional portion of the form.

Note: The identity of a DOE Digital Identity subscriber must be verified against acceptable identity source documents. You must present the required documents when you meet with the Trusted Agent.

The Trusted Agent will fax the completed SAF to DOE Headquarters PKI Support Team at 301-903-2172. The original SAF can be maintained at the originating facility or mailed to:

Germantown, MD 20874
