ENVISIONING COMPREHENSIVE ENTITY IDENTIFICATION FOR THE U.S. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
The U.S. federal government uses 50 distinct entity identification systems all separate and incompatible with one another. To give just one example of the difficulties created based on the use of multiple identification systems, the Employer Data Matching Workgroup, after surveying the landscape of entity identification systems used to track U.S. employers, concluded:  “The greatest barrier to matching data on employers across data sets is the lack of a common, or universal, business identifier. Eliminating this obstacle by developing a Federal system to create and manage a universal identifier could result in cost savings in matching but would require a major investment of time and Federal resources to create and maintain such an infrastructure.
