NSA Philadelphia, under direction from CNIC, is implementing significant changes to its access procedures to increase the security of the installation. These new procedures will directly impact vendors, contractors, sub-contractors, and service providers who regularly access NSA Philadelphia.
To summarize the impact: due to safety and security requirements, access will be delayed if you are accessing the installation using a NSA Philadelphia Contractor Activity Badge or Day Pass. Part of the increase in security will require additional individual and vehicle screenings that will occur during each visit. To gain streamlined access onto the installation, we encourage you to review the benefits of the RAPIDGate program.
