Presentation Transcript
  • NOAA employees and contractors began receiving new badges in April, 2008, known as Common Access Cards (CACs). These new badges are a requirement of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), Personal Identity Verification II (PIV-II). The existing NOAA badges, which do not satisfy these requirements, will be phased out over the coming years.
  • NOAA's Office of the Chief Administrative Officer (OCAO) is leading this phased implementation effort into HSPD-12 PIV-II compliance by using the Department of Defense's CAC PIV-II solution. Issuance of the CAC to NOAA employees and contractors will be managed by respective Line/Staff Offices(LO/SO).

  • CACs are issued at Real-time Automated Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS) stations.
  • All NOAA employees and contractors must have a record in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) to receive a CAC.

  • NOAA employee records are created and downloaded into DEERS via an automatic data feed.
  • Contractors records are created by a Trusted Agent (TA) via the Contractor Verification System (CVS). After the contractor’s application has been approved by the TA, a record will be created and downloaded in DEERS.
  • Contractor Verification System (CVS) is a web-based application.
  • CVS allows NOAA Contractors to register for a Common Access Card (CAC) electronically via the internet.
  • Contractors must be sponsored by a Trusted Agent (NOAA employee only) and complete an on-line application in CVS.
