Serving NOAA's Most Valuable Asset - People

New Procedures for Issuing / Re-issuing NOAA ID Badges:

On October 11, 2005, the Department of Commerce implemented the requirements of Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 PIV-1: Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors.

This policy changed the requirements and process for issuance of ID badges (Personal Identity Verification cards). NOAA must obtain the results of an FBI National Criminal History Check (fingerprint check) and initiate a National Agency Check with Inquiries (NACI), or other suitability / national security investigation for all new employees and contractors before issuance of a badge.

In addition, current NOAA employees and contractors must meet certain requirements before they can be 're-badged'. These include completion of a NACI and verification of identity. NOAA employees and contractors renewing or replacing an expired, broken, or lost badge are subject to these requirements. If your badge is nearing expiration, please talk with your supervisor immediately about the process for replacement.

Don't wait until the last minute!
