RELX PLC said its LexisNexis Risk Solutions division received a blanket purchase agreement to provide digital identity verification for state unemployment-insurance programs by the U.S. Department of Labor.

The company said the five-year, $1.2 billion award is the continuation of longstanding relationships with federal, state, and local agencies.

The deal allows LexisNexis Risk Solutions to provide identity proofing solutions to government agencies, using biometric, identity verification and device/digital/behavioral risk assessment to prevent fraud.
