why a new arc
Why a New ARC?
  • The current ARC is a legacy capability that has remained largely unchanged for more than a decade.
  • Newer technology allows improvements in usability, functionality, security, and scalability.
  • Increasingly important Information Assurance (IA) requirements demand tighter controls on user access and auditability.
  • The new platform facilitates broader outreach to industry partners through improved communication mechanisms.
  • PKI integration improves traceability and ease of access on classified systems.
arc 2 0 initial capability
ARC 2.0Initial Capability
  • ARC 2.0 provides significant improvements, while still maintains all the features of the legacy ARC.
  • In the initial rollout, the majority of the content will continue to reside in the legacy ARC.
  • The contractor registry will not initially have any organizations registered.
  • Legacy ARC content, such as current efforts and libraries, will be transferred into ARC 2.0 during the transition period.
  • New efforts will be initiated in ARC 2.0.
  • Content will grow as efforts increase during the transition.
parallel operations
Parallel Operations
  • ARC and ARC 2.0 will operate in parallel during the transition period.
  • During the transition, some content will be on the legacy ARC, and some on ARC 2.0.
  • Having accounts in both systems, will allow you to link them and navigate between the sites.
  • The legacy ARC will be retired and any pertinent content will be moved to ARC 2.0.
what industry needs to know
What Industry Needs to Know
  • Corporate Account/Capabilities will not be migrated
    • The FIRST INDIVIDUAL from each company who establishes an account with a verifiable corporate email address will be the designated POC for that company.
    • Once the company is registered, the POC may assign additional users to manage that company's registry data.
  • User Accounts will not be migrated
    • A new account (username, password, and login details) will need to be established.
    • Once the new account is verified via e-mail, your current ARC account can be linked.
creating account
Creating Account
  • DUNS numbers are required.
  • The appropriate government business POC (business development or contracts) should be the first individual to signup for the ARC.
  • That individual must have a corporate email from a domain that matches the government POC email domain in
  • For example, if your government POC in is [email protected], the first person to signup must have an email at
  • You will receive an email with a link to verify your account. You must click the link within 24 hours.
remember while signing up
Remember While Signing Up
  • Corporate email addresses are required. No Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail etc.
  • If you have a High Side email address, enter it. Your High Side email address is not classified.
  • The more complete your information, the easier it will be to help you with any issues.
once registered
Once Registered
  • Once you have your account, you can login to the ARC.
  • Remember that your username is your open email address.
  • Subsequent registrants to your company also need to have verifiable corporate email addresses.
  • Corporate responsibilities can be transferred amongst individuals within your company once logged in.
  • ARC 2.0 has only one type of login. There is no longer a distinction between company and individual accounts. Rather, individuals have rights to manage company information.
classified arc transition
Classified ARC Transition
  • ARC 2.0 is being transitioned on the high side AFTER the initial unclassified rollout.
  • Once you have an account on the unclassified system, it will automatically be transferred to the high side within 1-2 business days.
  • Later this year, IC PKI will be required to access the classified ARC. All contractors must be proactive in obtaining PKI certificates from their sponsoring agencies.
  • For questions about PKI, email [email protected] (secure), or call 850-NICO (secure), (703) 808-NICO (open).
classified arc access
Classified ARC Access
  • You will use the same username (open email) and password initially on the high side.
  • When initially transferred, your account on the high side will be locked out. You must be able to receive an email at your secure email address to verify your account.
  • Once your high side account is established, you will manage your PKI and/or password for the high and low accounts separately.
  • You will be able to associate your IC PKI certificate with your account, and login using PKI only on the high side.
  • Today’s demonstration will cover:

  • In My Arc, use My Account Settings to manage all aspects of your account.
notifications subscriptions
Notifications & Subscriptions
  • Manage the efforts and agencies you are interested in under My Arc->My Subscriptions.
  • When new open efforts come out, you will be subscribed by default. You can then unsubscribe if you are not interested in that particular effort.
  • View your notifications/messages in My Arc->My Notifications/Inbox.
  • My Arc->My Calendar will show you important dates for all the efforts you are subscribed to.
account linking
Account Linking
  • You MUST have accounts in both the legacy ARC and ARC 2.0 before attempting to link your accounts.
  • The account linking process will not automatically create new accounts in either system.
  • The two accounts are separate, with their own usernames and passwords managed independently.
  • The account linking feature is a convenience for navigating between the two systems and not a requirement of either system.
  • You MUST start in the legacy ARC and access an ARC 2.0 resource from that system to link your accounts.
