Report: Navy Extends Deadline for Contractor Biometric ID Transition

1 min read

The U.S. Navy has extended its Aug. 15 deadline for the military branch’s contractors to obtain a Defense Biometric Identification System pass to access naval bases, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

Sean Stackley, formerly acting U.S. Navy secretary, told Congress in a letter he ordered the extension as the service branch reviews DBIDS as well as the Navy Commercial Access Control System and other base access management variations in an effort to ensure the systems’ compliance with Defense Department and Navy standards.

The Navy began to transition contractors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers and vendors who hold an NCACS card to a DBIDS credential in April.

DBIDS is designed to strengthen base security and communications through continuous vetting anytime the platform scans a card at an installation entry point.
