Defense Biometric Identification System

New Access Control System (DBIDS) Delayed Until Further Notice

The previously-announced new installation access control system, Defense Biometric Identification System, or DBIDS, has been temporarily delayed at both Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River, due to technical difficulties that are currently awaiting a solution. At this time, a new transition date has not been set and contractors will not be able to exchange their current credentials for DBIDS credentials on June 25, as previously planned. Current contractors are still urged to pre-enroll into DBIDS at https://dbids-global.dmdc.mil/enroll#!/ so their information will be readily available once the system comes online.

For installation access, current contractors are advised to continue to provide their RAPIDGate or MCESS credential along with a valid government-issued identification card. Until the DBIDS system comes online, new contractors will be issued a temporary pass, through the Camp Lejeune Contractor Vetting Office, Building TT-13, next to the Wilson Gate. Temporary passes will be granted for a period of up to 59 days at which time a new temporary pass must be secured in order to access the installation.

As a reminder, this delay has no impact on individuals holding a valid Common Access Card (CAC), dependent ID card, reserve ID card, or retiree ID card issued by the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). If you have further questions, please contact the Contractor Vetting Office at 910-450-0283/0284/0285.


Here’s what you need to know:

CURRENT DOD ID CARD HOLDERS

  • If you currently hold a valid Common Access Card (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.

CURRENT CONTRACTORS

  • Beginning June 5, 2018, RAPIDGate/MCESS card holders will be required to present a second form of government-issued identification to the gate sentry, along with the RAPIDGate/MCESS credential, in order to access MCB Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River.
  • DBIDS credentials will be issued beginning June 25, 2018
  • DBIDS credentials will be valid for the duration of your contract, not to exceed five years; however, re-vetting of individuals’ information will occur each year.
  • Contractors can exchange their current RAPIDGate/MCESS credential for a DBIDS credential without re-vetting, however they will be required to bring the following items:
    • Current RAPIDGate/MCESS credential
    • Second form of government-issued identification (driver license, passport, etc.)
    • Company Contract/Letter of Authorization
  • New DBIDS credentials will be valid for the remainder of the contract (not to exceed 5 years), but individuals will be re-vetted each year.
  • All contractors (MCB Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River) will be able to exchange their current RAPIDGate/MCESS credential at the Camp Lejeune Contractor Vetting Office, Building TT-13, next to the Wilson Gate.  NOTE: If a contractor requires flight line access, they must exchange their credential at Building AS-187 next to MCAS New River’s Main Gate entrance.  Only contractors needing flight line access will be serviced at AS-187.  Flight line access will still be granted at AS-302 using the procedures already in place.

NEW CONTRACTORS

  • DBIDS credentials will be issued beginning June 25, 2018
  • New contractors requiring access for over 60 days will receive a credential valid for up to one year.
  • New contractors requiring access for less than 60 days will receive a temporary paper pass.

REMINDER: Beginning June 5, 2018, all personnel in possession of a RAPIDGate/MCESS credential will also be required to provide a second valid U.S. government form of identification.  Beginning June 25, 2018, DBIDS credentials will be issued or exchanged in place of a RAPIDGate/MCESS credential.  The last day RAPIDGate/MCESS credentials will be authorized for entry onto the installation is September 30, 2018.
