Community Announcements

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is looking for participants for a short study that will help government technology and websites work better for all communities. Our research hopes to understand how to improve the way we verify people’s identities remotely. This study requires some personal information (such as a picture of your ID, selfie, social security number, etc) and can be completed on your smartphone in roughly 15 minutes. Specifically, the study will test for bias in facial matching technology and other methods used to verify identity so that people can get access to services from their government.

If you complete the study and are eligible, you will receive a $25 e-gift card as compensation for your time. CLICK HERE to help us make government websites work for you. You can find more information on how GSA will use and protect your information at identityequitystudy.gsa.gov.

GSA is committed to combating bias and improving outreach practices, user testing, and user experience for underserved communities in civic tech design. We need your help to make this happen. SIGN UP!
