Time is quickly approaching for the new base access procedures which will be effective Oct. 31.
Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) is changing access control policies to maintain safety, security and efficiency. These changes will primarily affect commercial contractors, sub-contractors, vendors, suppliers and service providers who regularly access the installation.
Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam has implemented the Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS), which is a voluntary program intended to increase security and streamline installation access for commercial personnel.
Any company that wishes to participate in the program can enroll by calling Eid Passport at 1-877RAPIDGate.
The NCACS program provides the required background checks and may prove to be a cost and time-saving benefit to companies and individuals conducting business on JBPHH.
NCAS-eligible personnel who choose not to participate in the NCACS program may apply for a local, one-day pass for installation access.
RAPIDGate participant benefits include:
* A credential pass will be issued for up to one year.
* Streamlined access will be allowed during the times that they need to perform business on the installation.
Non-RAPIDGate participant (access ID/day pass) restrictions:
* Only one-day passes will be issued as of Oct. 31.
* Gold cards will no longer be valid for access as of Oct. 31.
* Longer wait times will occur in the pass and ID office.
Questions about JBPHH NCACS implementation should be addressed to email@example.com with the subject line RE: NCACS Program or to the JBPHH Security Department at 448-9829 or 449-9705.
