LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, a leading provider of data, analytics and technology to help organizations predict and manage risk, today announced that the United States Department of Labor (DOL) has awarded the company a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to provide industry leading digital identity verification for state unemployment insurance programs.
