Naval Base Introduces RAPIDgate For Vendor Access Control


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Eid Passport
: 04 August, 2010  (Application Story)
Faster and more secure access will be achieved at the Ventura County Naval Base in America using the pre-enrolled vendor credentialing RAPIDgate pass from EID passport minimising delays and improving security
Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) is further increasing security procedures for vendors, suppliers, service providers and contractors who access the installation. Just over a year ago, NBVC proactively pursued increased security procedures and streamlined installation access by implementing the RAPIDGate Program from Eid Passport. The program is now part of a Navy initiative to streamline access due to recent changes in Department of Defense (DoD) and Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) security directives requiring the implementation of tighter security requirements.

Effective August 01, 2010 NBVC Contractor Badges will no longer be issued by the installation and after October 01, 2010 existing issued badges will no longer be accepted for access. Any vendor, supplier, service provider or contractor who chooses not to enrol their company and register their employees for the RAPIDGate Program will be required to obtain a daily pass and will have limited access to the installation through the Victoria Gate (Port Hueneme) and the Las Posas Gate (Point Mugu). In addition, non-RAPIDGate participants will be subject to 100% vehicle inspection during each access with delays expected.

The RAPIDGate Program provides a year-long access credential after participants pass a background screening process and are approved by the installation. Credentials are electronically scanned and verified by security personnel in a matter of a few seconds, streamlining access to the installation.

“After twelve months of demonstrating the RAPIDGate Program’s ability to effectively increase security and streamline access control procedures at Naval Base Ventura County, we were pleased to be selected to streamline security at Navy installations across the Continental US,” said Eid Passport CEO Steve Larson. “Naval Base Ventura County has helped lead the way to further secure our nation.”
