New access control system delayed at Camp Lejeune, New River
CAMP LEJEUNE, Onslow County —
A new identification system that was scheduled to be used at Marine Corps Base Camp Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River has been delayed.
In a press release from the United States Marine Corps, it was announced the Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS) would be delayed due to technical difficulties. The program was scheduled to be used starting June 25 but has been delayed until further notice.
Below is a press release with more information.
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 by clicking here 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.
