Contractors, Vendors Required to Obtain DBIDS Access Cards by Aug. 14

07/13/17

ASAN, Guam (July 14, 2017) – To improve management and force protection at military installations, Joint Region Marianas is transitioning from using the Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS) to the Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS) for contractors and vendors requiring access to Navy and Air Force installations on island. 

Beginning Aug. 14, NCACS will no longer be accepted for access to military installations.

Contractors or vendors who need assistance in transitioning from NCACS to a DBIDS temporary pass to a DBIDS card can contact the installation Visitor Control Center (VCC) or Pass & ID office.

The U.S. Naval Base Guam VCC is open Monday-Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, contact 339-1180

DBIDS processing for Andersen Air Force Base is available Monday-Friday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the North Gate along Route 9. For more information, contact 366-5477.

Contractors and vendors are reminded there may be a high demand during the transition and possible delays in processing new credentials and passes.

Contractors who are issued common access cards are not required to register for DBIDS.

DBIDS cards are issued with no cost to the applicant. Those requesting new access onto installations will receive the DBIDS card at the same time they are initially approved for access. 

DBIDS is the ID card scanning system used by security personnel at Joint Region Marianas installations and can scan an ID card in a single second or less. DBIDS uses bar codes and biometrics to identify cardholders, which verifies authorizations and assigns access privileges based on identify, affiliation, and the current force protection condition.

The new DBIDS scanner responds faster and with more accuracy than a human checking an ID card. This means, with the heavy volume of traffic entering a base during peak traffic hours, entry controllers can now scan credentials instead of relying on visual ID card inspections lessening bottlenecks or chokepoints at base entry control points.

The system is maintained by the Defense Manpower Data Center, owners of the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System, or DEERS, and the Real-Time Automated Personnel Identification System, or RAPIDS.

When a Department of Defense credential is initially scanned at an installation entry control point, the cardholder is automatically registered in DBIDS once the ID card is validated in DEERS. Also, information is screened by the FBI National Criminal Information Center (NCIC). DBIDS is inter-connected with DEERS and NCIC for continuous vetting.
