MCLB Albany transitions to a new access control system
Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany is transitioning to a new government owned access control system called Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS). DBIDS is already installed at more than 320 sites with approximately 5 million registered personnel; and unlike previous systems, DBIDS is a free service. This new and enhanced system will replace RAPIDGate for contractors and other non-DoD-affiliated personnel requiring installation access. There is no change or action required for Common Access Card (CAC), dependent, reserve, or retiree ID card holders. Existing contractor/vendor credentials will be accepted during the transition period; however, all will be replaced with a new DBIDS credential not later than April 1, 2019. New contractor/vendor requests for a DBIDS credential can be made using the same vetting requirements as previously required using the existing base access form. After April 1, 2019, all contractors will be required to have a DBIDS credential in order to gain access to the installation. To reduce wait time when exchanging your existing contractor/vendor credential, it is highly recommended each approved applicant pre-register at https://dbids-global.dmdc.mil/enroll#!/. Trusted Agents will be providing transition guidance for existing contractor/vendor credentials using a phasing plan.
Here's what you need to know:
CURRENT DOD ID CARD HOLDERS
If you currently hold a valid CAC, dependent ID card, reserve ID card, or retiree ID card, issued by the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS), no further action is required.
You will be automatically enrolled in DBIDS when your ID card is initially scanned at the gate. Expect a one-time delay of 3-6 seconds as the DBIDS system initially registers your information.
Beginning October 1, 2018, existing contractor/vendor credential card holders will be required to present a signed copy of the base access extension letter to the gate sentry, along with the existing contractor/vendor credentials, to gain access to the installation.
DBIDS credentials are already being issued.
DBIDS credentials will be valid for the duration of your contract, or up to one year. Re-vetting of individuals’ information will occur each year.
After employment suitability is established, all MCLB Albany contractors will be able to obtain their DBIDS card at the Pass and Identification Office in Building 3010.
NEW CONTRACTOR EMPLOYEES
DBIDS credentials will be issued beginning September 17, 2018.
New contractors requiring access for more than 60 days will receive a DBIDS credential, valid for length of the contract (up to one year).
New contractors requiring access for fewer than 60 days will receive a DBIDS temporary paper pass.
All personnel being issued a DBIDS credential will also be required to provide a second valid U.S. government form of identification listed on the I-9 form provided by the trusted agent. Beginning September 17, 2018, DBIDS credentials will be issued or exchanged in place of a current contractor/vendor credential. The last day current contractor/vendor credentials will be authorized for entry onto the installation is April 1, 2019. Current CAC holders can get more information at https://dbids.dmdc.mil/#!/resources If you have questions regarding the replacement of a contractor/vendor credential for DBIDS, or you are a new contractor seeking enrollment in DBIDS, please call the Pass and Identification Office at 229-639-5100/5150/5200.
