must be upgraded to use PIV credentials , in accordance with NIST guidelines, prior to the agency

using development and technology refresh funds to complete other activities." https://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/memoranda/2011/m11-11.pdf. This memo, had it been followed with determination, could have mitigated risk to federal IT systems through virtually eliminating the risk of breach due to compromised credentials.
