Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS)
On April 17, the Navy began transitioning all vendors, contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers and service providers seeking base access who currently use or qualify for the Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS) from NCACS to Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS). The transition applies to installations in the continental United States, Hawaii and Guam.
The transition that is currently underway from NCACS to DBIDS applies to all eligible vendors, contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, and service providers. Those individuals with Department of Defense (DoD) approved sponsorship to conduct business with the Navy and/or tenant commands aboard a Navy installation, who are not eligible for a common access card (CAC) also may apply for a DBIDS card.
Current NCACS cardholders will have until August 14 to obtain a DBIDS credential at the local base Visitor Control Center. NCACS cards will no longer be accepted after August 14. Contractors, sub-contractors, vendors and suppliers who do not have an NCACS card will have up to 180 days to obtain their DBIDS credential.
For information on how to obtain a DBIDS credential, go to www.cnic.navy.mil/om/dbids.html
Common Access Card (CAC)
CACs are issued to all active duty military members, Reserves, National Guard, DoD civilians, non-DoD/other government employees, and state employees of National Guard and eligible DoD contractors who need access to DoD facilities or DoD computer network systems.
