This will provide cost savings to HQ, ensure compliancy with federal mandates for improved security, and allow users to take advantage of advanced technologies available. All HQ personnel are encouraged to turn in tokens that are no longer utilized. Visit the HQ Token Phase-Out Project Web page for details.
