InFrequently asked questions about the new access policyWhich ID should be used?Federal employees and military personnel will only use their CAC. Contractors with computer access will alsouse their CAC. Contractors or vendors without CACs will need to obtain the new NCACS (RAPIDGate) IDcard (or opt for using a one-day pass).How does this affect Military retiree, dependent IDs or other DOD IDs?There is no change for these other IDs. They continue to provide access when being used for the purposes ofwhich they were given.Will anything need to be done differently at the gates?Drivers of all vehicles need to roll down their window and have their CAC or NCACS ID (or pass with photoID) ready for inspection by the gate sentry.What about perimeter turnstile access?Personnel walking onto the installation via a turnstile will also be required to have either a CAC or NCACS IDbut they will need to continue utilizing the NAVSEA badge to operate the turnstile until a time when the perim-eter turnstiles can be converted to CAC & NCACS. Periodic / random checks of pedestrians at turnstiles to havethe CAC or NCACS will be implemented.What about new employees or contractors who have just registered but have not yet received their CAC orNCACS ID?Contractors will be given a 28 day temp pass when they register with NCACS to be used until that ID arrives.Same type pass will be issued for new govt employees who have not yet received their CAC.
