Overview

OneSpan Sign enables compliance with the 21st Century IDEA Act through secure e-signature technology

On December 20, 2018, the 21st Century Integrated Digital Experience Act (also known as the 21st Century IDEA Act) was  signed into law.

The 21st Century IDEA Act creates a set of minimum functionality and security standards that federal agencies must meet. For example, it requires agencies to offer digital versions of paper-based citizen services and accept electronic signatures, allowing citizens to complete transactions digitally.

In June 2019, executive agencies must provide Congress and the OMB a plan for enabling electronic signature technology. By December 2020, all public-facing forms are required to have a digital option.
