Identification (ID) Cards for Members of the Uniformed Services, 
Their Dependents, and Other Eligible Individuals

AGENCY: Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and 
Readiness, DoD.

ACTION: Interim rule with request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Defense (DoD) proposes to establish policy, 
assign responsibilities, and provide procedures for the issuing of 
distinct DoD ID cards. The ID cards shall be issued to uniformed 
service members, their dependents, and other eligible individuals and 
will be used as proof of identity and DoD affiliation. Following the 
June 26, 2013, U.S. Supreme Court decision that found Section 3 of the 
Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, this rule also extends 
benefits to same sex spouses of Uniformed Service members and DOD 
civilians. The Department will now construe the words ``spouse'' and 
``marriage'' to include same-sex spouses and marriages.

DATES: Effective date: This rule is effective on January 6, 2014.
    Comment date: Comments must be received by March 7, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Executive Summary

I. Purpose of This Regulatory Action

    Title 10, Sections 1061-1064, 1072-1074, 1074a-1074c, 1076, 1076a, 
1077, and 1095 (k)(2), authorize members of the Uniformed Services 
(active duty, Reserve, or retired members) and their spouses and 
dependents certain benefits and privileges. Title 18, Sections 499, 
506, 509, 701, and 1001, address penalties, fines and imprisonment for 
unauthorized reproduction of ID cards. The DoD ID cards authorize 
eligible individuals (to include specific categories of civilians and 
contractors) certain benefits and privileges to include health care; 
use of commissary; exchange; and morale, welfare, and recreation 
facilities.
    This regulatory action:
    a. Establishes policy, assigns responsibilities, and provides 
procedures for the issuing of all DoD ID cards.
    b. Incorporates policy for the implementation of Homeland Security 
Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 within DoD.
    c. Incorporates Common Access Card (CAC) policy and issuance 
procedures.
    d. Incorporates CAC eligibility requirements for Foreign National 
personnel.
    e. Sets forth responsibilities and procedures for the DoD ID card 
life-cycle.
    f. Prescribes the benefits for commissary; exchange; morale, 
welfare, and recreation (MWR); Military Health Services direct care in 
military treatment facilities (MTFs); and TRICARE civilian health care 
(CHC) in support of the members of the uniformed services, their 
dependents, and other eligible individuals.

II. Background

    The current DoD Instruction, which establishes policy, assigns 
responsibilities, and provides procedures for issuing distinct DoD ID 
cards to uniformed service members, their dependents, and other 
eligible individuals, for proof of identity and DoD affiliation, was 
issued on December 5, 1997. DoD revised this instruction, updating the 
content and incorporating and canceling several policy memorandums, 
into a single instruction and two additional implementing manuals. The 
revised policy for ID cards was codified into a proposed rule which was 
published on August 6, 2010 (75 FR 47515). The June 26, 2013 U.S. 
Supreme Court decision in United States v. Windsor found Section 3 of 
the Defense of Marriage Act to be unconstitutional and the Department 
now construes the words ``spouse'' and ``marriage'' to include same-sex 
spouses and marriages.

III. Justification To Issue an Interim Rule

    DOD is promulgating this interim rule without prior opportunity for 
public comment since the policy for ID cards was published as a 
proposed rule on August 6, 2010 (75 FR 47515) and no public comments 
were received. So, this interim rule makes final the content of the 
proposed rule.
    With the June 26, 2013 Supreme Court decision in United States v. 
Windsor finding Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act 
unconstitutional, DoD is no longer prevented from extending Federal 
benefits to the same-sex spouses of DoD military members and civilian 
employees. As a result, in an August 13, 2013 Secretary of Defense 
Memorandum, ``Extending Benefits to Same-Sex Spouses of Military 
Members,'' the Secretary of Defense directed that, ``. . . spousal and 
family benefits, including identification cards, will be made available 
to same-sex spouses no later than September 3, 2013,'' (http://www.defense.gov/home/features/2013/docs/Extending-Benefits-to-Same-Sex-Spouses-of-Military-Members.pdf).
    DoD issues approximately five million ID cards each year to 
military members, civilian employees, contractors, foreign nationals, 
and where applicable, family members. The Department estimates the 
number of ID cards which will need to be issued to same-sex spouses and 
their families represent less than one percent of the total ID cards 
issued in a year. The Department believes this rule relates to ``agency 
management or personnel'' and is exempt under sec. 553(a)(2) from all 
requirements of sec. 533. Nevertheless, pursuant to 41 U.S.C. 1707, DoD 
will consider public comments received in response to this interim rule 
in the formation of the Department's final rule.

IV. Costs and Benefits of This Regulatory Action

    There are no costs to the public. There are no capital or start-up 
costs associated with the issuance of this rule. ID cards cost the 
Department approximately $28.3 million annually.

[[Page 709]]

V. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Under Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563, the Department has 
determined that this interim rule is a significant regulatory action, 
though not an economically significant one, and it has been reviewed by 
OMB.
    It has been certified that 32 CFR part 161 does not:
    (1) Have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or 
adversely affect in a material way the economy; a section of the 
economy; productivity; competition; jobs; the environment; public 
health or safety; or State, local, or tribal governments or 
communities;
    (2) Create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with an 
action taken or planned by another Agency;
    (3) Materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, grants, 
user fees, or loan programs, or the rights and obligations of 
recipients thereof; or
    (4) Raise novel legal or policy issues arising out of legal 
mandates, the President's priorities, or the principles set forth in 
these Executive Orders.

VI. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Pursuant to section 605(b) of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 
U.S.C. 601 et seq.), the DoD certifies that the interim rule will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.

VII. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    Per the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 and E.O. 12875, this 
rule will not create an unfunded Federal mandate upon any State, local, 
or tribal government in the aggregate of $100 million or more. It also 
does not result in increased expenditures of the privacy sector of $100 
million or more.

VIII. Paperwork Reduction Act

Public Law 96-511, ``Paperwork Reduction Act'' (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35)

    It has been certified that 32 CFR part 161 does impose reporting or 
recordkeeping requirements under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. 
The Application for Department of Defense Identification Card/DEERS 
Enrollment collection has been cleared by OMB and assigned OMB Control 
Number 0704-0415.

Executive Order 13132, ``Federalism''

    It has been certified that 32 CFR part 161 does not have federalism 
implications, as set forth in Executive Order 13132. This rule does not 
have substantial direct effects on:
    (1) The States;
    (2) The relationship between the National Government and the 
States; or
    (3) The distribution of power and responsibilities among the 
various levels of Government.

List of Subjects in 32 CFR Part 161

    Administrative practice and procedure, Armed forces, Military 
personnel, National defense, Privacy, Security measures.

    Accordingly, 32 CFR part 161 is added to subchapter F to read as 
follows:

voluntary insurance program for sponsors and eligible dependents 
separating from active service; pre-separation counseling service for 
separating uniformed services members; and various other transitional 
initiatives. Uniformed service members separated as uncharacterized 
entry-level separations do not qualify for THC. Section 706 of Public 
Law 108-375 replaced the TAMP with the THC program. Section 651 of 
Public Law 110-181 included the 2-year commissary and exchange 
privilege for involuntarily separated uniformed service members. The 
DoD added MWR to the benefit set and extended the same benefits to the 
eligible dependents. To qualify for benefits under this program, 
individuals must be separated with service characterized as honorable 
or general under honorable conditions meeting the separation reasons 
identified in 10 U.S.C. 1145. The THC program is a permanent program 
and made the medical eligibility 180 days for all eligible uniformed 
service members and eligible dependents. Enlisted uniformed service 
members discharged for reasons of misconduct, discharge in lieu of 
court-martial, or other reasons for which service normally is 
characterized as under other than honorable conditions are not eligible 
for transition benefits. Officers discharged as a result of resignation 
in lieu of trial by court-martial, or misconduct or moral or 
professional dereliction if the discharge could be characterized as 
under other than honorable conditions are not eligible for transition

duty include:
    (1) A member who is involuntarily separated from active duty.
    (2) A member of a Reserve Component who is separated from active 
duty to which called or ordered in support of a contingency operation

in 10 U.S.C. 1174); or
    (6) A member who is separated from active duty who agrees to become 
a member of the SelRes. Section 734 of Public Law 110-417, which took

member who is separated from active duty who agrees to become a member 
of the SelRes of the Ready Reserve of a Reserve Component.

that CAC applicants have the appropriate government sponsorship for the 
purpose of issuing CACs. The TASS web interface automates the DD Form 
1172-2 for tracking the request process and updating DEERS with 
applicant information required for CAC issuance. The system also 
provides a mechanism for periodic re-verification of contractor 
eligibility to ensure that information is current and contractor CACs 
do not remain active when not appropriate. This capability will be 
expanded to support registration and background investigation 
confirmation for additional CAC eligible populations.
    Unmarried. A widow or widower who remarried and whose marriage 
terminated by death or divorce, or a former spouse whose subsequent 
remarriage ended by death or divorce.
    Unremarried. A widow or widower who has never remarried, or a

Sec.  161.6  Procedures.

    (a) The DoD ID card life cycle shall be supported by an 
infrastructure that is predicated on a systems-based model for 
credentialing as described in FIPS Publication 201-1. Paragraphs (a)(1) 
through (7) of this section represent the baseline requirements for the 
life cycle of all DoD ID cards. The specific procedures and sequence of 
order for these items will vary based on the applicant's employment 
status or affiliation with the DoD and the type of ID card issued. 
Detailed procedures of the ID card life cycle for each category of 
applicant and type of ID card shall be provided by the responsible 
agency.
    (1) Sponsorship and eligibility. Sponsorship shall incorporate the 
processes for confirming eligibility for an ID card. The sponsor is the 
person affiliated with the DoD or other Federal agency who takes 
responsibility for verifying and authorizing the applicant's need for 
an ID card. Applicants for a CAC must be sponsored by a DoD government 
official or employee.
    (2) Registration and enrollment. Sponsorship and enrollment 
information on the ID card applicant shall be registered in DEERS prior 
to card issuance.
    (3) Background investigation. A background investigation is 
required for those individuals eligible for a CAC. A background 
investigation is not currently required for those eligible for other 
forms of DoD ID cards. Sponsored CAC applicants shall not be issued a 
CAC without a favorably adjudicated background investigation stipulated 
in FIPS Publication 201-1. Applicants that have been denied a CAC based 
on an unfavorable adjudication of the background investigation may 
submit an appeal in accordance with FIPS Publication 201-1 and Office 
of Personnel Management Memorandum, ``Final Credentialing Standards for 
Issuing Personal Identity Verification Cards under HSPD-12.''
    (4) Identity and eligibility verification. Identity and eligibility 
verification shall be completed at a RAPIDS workstation. Verifying 
officials (VOs) shall inspect identity and eligibility documentation 
and RAPIDS shall authenticate individuals to ensure that ID cards are 
provided only to those sponsored and with a current affiliation with 
the DoD. RAPIDS shall also capture uniquely

[[Page 716]]

identifying characteristics that bind an individual to the information 
maintained on that individual in DEERS and to the ID card issued by 
RAPIDS. These characteristics may include, but are not limited to, 
digital photographs and fingerprints.
    (5) Issuance. ID cards shall be issued at the RAPIDS workstation 
after all sponsorship, enrollment and registration, background 
investigation (CAC only), and identity and eligibility verification 
requirements have been satisfied.
    (6) Use and maintenance. ID cards shall be used as proof of 
identity and DoD affiliation to facilitate access to DoD facilities and 
systems. Additionally, ID cards shall represent authorization for 
entitled benefits and privileges in accordance with DoD policies.
    (7) Retrieval and revocation. ID cards shall be retrieved by the 
sponsor or sponsoring organization when the ID card has expired, when 
it is damaged or compromised, or when the card holder is no longer 
affiliated with the DoD or no longer meets the eligibility requirements 
for the card. The active status of an ID card shall be revoked within 
the DEERS and RAPIDS infrastructure and the PKI certificates on the CAC 
shall be revoked.
    (b) The guidelines and restrictions of this paragraph apply to all 
forms of DoD ID cards.
    (1) Any person willfully altering, damaging, lending, 
counterfeiting, or using these cards in any unauthorized manner is 
subject to fine or imprisonment or both, as prescribed in 18 U.S.C. 
499, 506, 509, 701, and 1001. Section 701 of 18 U.S.C. prohibits 
photographing or otherwise reproducing or possessing DoD ID cards in an 
unauthorized manner, under penalty of fine or imprisonment or both. 
Unauthorized or fraudulent use of ID cards would exist if bearers used 
the card to obtain benefits and privileges to which they are not 
entitled. Examples of authorized photocopying include photocopying of 
DoD ID cards to facilitate medical care processing, check cashing, 
voting, tax matters, compliance with 50 U.S.C. appendix 501 (also known 
as ``The Service member's Civil Relief Act''), or administering other 
military-related benefits to eligible beneficiaries. When possible, the 
ID card will be electronically authenticated in lieu of photographing 
the card.
    (2) International agreements (including status-of-forces 
agreements) and host-nation law may limit and/or define the types of 
support available to personnel in overseas areas. Although an ID card 
may be used to verify eligibility in the United States for access to, 
for example, commissary or exchange facilities, the use of such 
facilities overseas may be limited to persons who are stationed or 
performing temporary duty in a foreign country under official orders in 
support of a mutual defense mission with the host nation. ID cards 
shall be issued only for the purposes identified in and in accordance 
with this Instruction, and the Heads of the DoD Components shall use 
other means, such as ration cards, to implement provisions in 
international agreements or to prevent violations of applicable host-
nation law. ID cards shall not be issued for the sole purpose of 
implementing provisions of international agreements or restrictions 
based on applicable host-nation law.
    (3) All ID cards are property of the U.S. Government and shall be 
returned upon separation, resignation, firing, termination of contract 
or affiliation with the DoD, or upon any other event in which the 
individual no longer requires the use of such ID card.
    (4) To prevent any unauthorized use, ID cards that are expired, 
invalidated, stolen, lost, or otherwise suspected of potential or 
actual unauthorized use shall be revoked in DEERS along with the PKI 
certificates on the CACs immediately revoked.
    (5) There are instances where graphical representations of ID cards 
are necessary to facilitate the DoD mission. When used and distributed, 
the replicas must not be the same size as the ID card, must have the 
word ``SAMPLE'' written on them, and shall not contain an individual's 
PII. All SAMPLE ID cards must be maintained in a controlled environment 
and shall not serve as a valid ID.
    (6) Individuals within the DoD who have multiple personnel category 
codes (e.g., an individual who is both a reservist and a contractor) 
shall be issued a separate ID card in each personnel category for which 
they are eligible. Multiple current ID cards of the same form (e.g., 
CAC) shall not be issued or exist for an individual under a single 
personnel category code.
    (7) ID cards shall not be amended, modified, or overprinted by any 
means. No stickers or other adhesive materials are to be placed on 
either side of an ID card. Holes shall not be punched into ID cards, 
except when a CAC has been requested by the next of kin for an 
individual who has perished in the line of duty. A CAC provided to next 
of kin shall have the status of the card revoked in DEERS, have the 
certificates revoked, and have a hole punched through the integrated 
circuit chip before it is released to the next of kin.
    (8) An ID card shall be in the personal custody of the individual 
to whom it was issued at all times. If required by military authority, 
it shall be surrendered for ID or investigation.
    (c) CAC migration to Federal PIV requirements. The DoD is migrating 
the CAC to meet the Federal requirements for credentialing contained 
within Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 and FIPS Publication 
201-1. Migration will take place over multiple years as the card 
issuance hardware, software, and supporting systems and processes are 
upgraded. Successful migration will require coordination and 
collaboration within and among all CAC communities (e.g., personnel 
security, operational security, industrial security, information 
security, physical security, and information technology). The 
organizations listed in this section will support the migration in 
conjunction with the responsibilities listed in Sec.  161.5:
    (1) The Director, DMDC shall:
    (i) Procure and distribute CAC consumables, including card stock, 
electromagnetically opaque sleeves, and printer supplies, commensurate 
with funding received from the DoD Components.
    (ii) In coordination with the Office of the Under Secretary of 
Defense for Policy, establish an electronic process for securing CAC 
eligibility information on foreign government military, employee, or 
contract support personnel whose visit status and background 
investigation has been confirmed, documented, and processed in 
accordance with DoD Directive 5230.20, ``Visits and Assignments of 
Foreign Nationals'' (available at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/523020p.pdf).
    (iii) In accordance with FIPS Publication 201-1, electronically 
capture and store source documents in the identity-proofing process at 
the accession points for eligible ID card holders.
    (iv) Implement modifications to the CAC applets and interfaces, add 
contactless capability to the CAC platform and implement modifications 
to the CAC topology to support compliance with FIPS Publication 201-1.
    (v) Establish and implement procedures for capturing biometrics 
required to support CAC issuance, which includes fingerprints and 
facial images specified in FIPS Publication 201-1 and National 
Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-76-1, 
``Biometric Data Specification for Personal Identity Verification'' 
(available at http://

[[Page 717]]

csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-76-1/SP800-76-1--012407.pdf).
    (vi) In coordination with the Executive Manager for DoD Biometrics 
and the Office of the USD(AT&L), implement the capability to obtain two 
segmented images (primary and secondary) fingerprint minutiae from the 
full 10-print fingerprints captured as part of the initial background 
investigation process for CAC issuance.
    (vii) Maintain a capability for a CAC holder to reset or unlock 
PINs from a system outside of the CAC issuance infrastructure.
    (2) The Executive Manager for DoD Biometrics, as appointed by the 
Secretary of the Army as DoD Executive Agent for DoD Biometrics in 
accordance with DoD Directive 8521.01E, ``Department of Defense 
Biometrics'' (available at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/852101p.pdf), shall:
    (i) Establish biometric standards for collection, storage, and 
subsequent transmittal of biometric information in accordance with DoD 
Directive 8521.01E (available at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/852101p.pdf).
    (ii) In coordination with the USD(P&R), the USD(I), and the Heads 
of the DoD Components, establish capability for biometric collection 
and enrollment operations to support CAC issuance in accordance with 32 
CFR part 310 and National Institute of Standards and Technology Special 
Publication 800-76-1 (available at http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-76-1/SP800-76-1_012407.pdf).
    (3) The Identity Protection and Management Senior Coordinating 
Group shall:
    (i) Monitor the CAC and identity management related activities 
outlined within this Instruction in accordance with DoD Directive 
1000.25 (available at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/100025p.pdf).
    (ii) Maintain a configuration management process for the CAC and 
its related components to monitor DoD compliance with FIPS Publication 
201-1.

Subpart B--DoD Identification (ID) Cards: ID Card Life-Cycle


Sec.  161.7  ID card life-cycle procedures.

    (a) Sponsorship and eligibility. In accordance with this part, 
sponsorship shall incorporate the processes for confirming eligibility 
for an ID card. The sponsor is the person affiliated with the DoD or 
other Federal agency who takes responsibility for verifying and 
authorizing the applicant's need for an ID card. Applicants for a CAC 
shall be sponsored by a DoD Government official or employee.
    (1) The population categories and specific ID cards for which 
applicants are eligible are listed in Appendix 1 of this section. The 
majority of these populations are eligible to be sponsored for an ID 
card based on either their employment status with the DoD or their 
authorization to receive DoD benefits and entitlements. Examples of 
these population categories include, but are not limited to: Uniformed 
services personnel; DoD civilian employees; military retirees; certain 
DoD beneficiaries; and the eligible dependents for these categories.
    (2) Specific populations, listed in paragraph (c)(2)(ii) of 
Appendix 1 of this section who are eligible to submit for the ``U.S. 
DoD/Uniformed Service ID Card'' may only be sponsored if they meet 
additional criteria. Examples of these population categories include 
DoD contractors, non-DoD Federal civilians, State employees, and other 
non-DoD personnel that have an affiliation with the DoD other than 
through employment or contract. Eligibility for these approved 
population categories is based on the DoD Government sponsor's 
determination of the type and frequency of access required to DoD 
facilities or networks. For the populations described in this 
paragraph, the applicant's sponsor must confirm that the applicant 
meets one of the requirements in paragraphs (a)(2)(i) and (iii) of this 
section:
    (i) Both physical access to a DoD facility and access, via logon, 
to DoD networks on-site or remotely. Access to the DoD network must 
require the use of a computer with Government-controlled configuration 
or use of a DoD-approved remote access procedure in accordance with the 
Defense Information Systems Agency Security Technical Implementation 
Guide, ``Secure Remote Computing'' (available at http://iase.disa.mil/stigs/a-z.html under ``Remote. . .'').
    (ii) Remote access, via logon, to a DoD network using DoD-approved 
remote access procedures.
    (iii) Physical access to multiple DoD facilities or multiple non-
DoD federally controlled facilities on behalf of the DoD (applicable to 
DoD contractors only) on a recurring basis for a period of 6 months or 
more.
    (A) The frequency of ``recurring basis'' for access shall be 
determined by the DoD Component concerned in coordination with 
installation security policies.
    (B) CAC eligibility for applicants requiring physical access to 
multiple DoD facilities on a recurring basis for less than 6 months are 
risk-based decisions that shall be made by the DoD Component concerned 
in coordination with installation security policies. These applicants 
may instead be eligible for local or regional base passes in accordance 
with Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (USD(I)) 
and local installation security policies and procedures.
    (b) Registration and enrollment. In accordance with this part, 
sponsorship and enrollment information about the ID card applicant 
shall be registered in the DEERS prior to card issuance.
    (1) For uniformed services personnel and DoD civilians, all 
submissions to DEERS must be made electronically via an authorized data 
source feed (e.g., Civilian Personnel Management Service). Data source 
feeds for additional population categories shall be approved and 
incorporated by the Office of the USD(P&R) (OUSD(P&R)) as they become 
available.
    (2) The population categories that are not registered via an 
authorized data source feed will be registered in DEERS via the RAPIDS 
using the DD Form 1172-2 or via the TASS (formerly known as CVS, as 
described in Sec.  161.8 of this subpart.
    (c) Background Investigation. In accordance with this subpart, a 
background investigation is required for those individuals eligible for 
a CAC. A background investigation is not currently required for those 
eligible for other forms of DoD ID cards. The use of the CAC, as the 
DoD Federal personal identity verification (PIV) card, is governed and 
supported by additional policies when compared to non-CAC ID cards. 
Sponsored CAC applicants shall not be issued a CAC without the required 
background investigation stipulated in FIPS Publication 201-1, 
``Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and 
Contractors'' (available at http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/fips/fips201-1/FIPS-201-1-chng1.pdf).
    (1) A background investigation shall be initiated by the sponsoring 
organization before a CAC can be issued. The mechanisms required to 
verify completion of background investigation activities for DoD, 
military, and civilian CAC populations are managed within the DoD human 
resources and personnel security communities and are linked to the CAC 
issuance process. An automated means is not currently in place to 
confirm the vetting for populations other than DoD military and 
civilian personnel such as

[[Page 718]]

CAC-eligible contractors and non-DoD Federal civilian affiliates. When 
data is not available within the CAC issuance infrastructure on the 
background investigation status for an applicant, the sponsor shall be 
responsible for confirming that the required background investigation 
procedures comply with the FIPS Publication 201-1 before a CAC is 
authorized for issuance.
    (2) Initial issuance of a CAC requires, at a minimum, the 
completion of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) fingerprint 
check with favorable results and submission of a NACI (or investigation 
approved in Federal Investigative Standards) to the USD(I) approved 
investigative service provider. Completed NACI's for CAC issuance shall 
be adjudicated in accordance with Office of Personnel Management 
Memorandum, ``Final Credentialing Standards for Issuing Personal 
Identity Verification Cards under HSPD-12'' (available at http://www.opm.gov/investigate/resources/final_credentialing_standards.pdf).
    (3) Except for uniformed services members, non-U.S. person CAC 
applicants that do not meet the criteria to complete a NACI (e.g., U.S. 
residency requirements), must meet one of the criteria in paragraph 
(c)(3)(i) or (ii) of this section prior to CAC issuance. CACs issued to 
these non-U.S. persons shall display a blue stripe as described in 
Appendix 2 of this section. Procedures for the acceptance of this CAC 
shall be in accordance with DoD policy for physical and logical access. 
The specific background investigation conducted on the non-U.S. person 
may vary based on governing international agreements. Non-U.S. persons 
must:
    (i) Possess (as foreign military, employee, or contract support 
personnel) a visit status and security assurance that has been 
confirmed, documented, and processed in accordance with international 
agreements pursuant to DoD Directive 5230.20, ``Visits and Assignments 
of Foreign Nationals'' (available at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/523020p.pdf).
    (ii) Meet (as direct or indirect DoD hire personnel overseas) the 
investigative requirements for DoD employment as recognized through 
international agreements pursuant to Volume 1231 of DoD Instruction 
1400.25, ``DoD Civilian Personnel Management System: Employment of 
Foreign Nationals'' (available at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/html/CPM_table2.html). In addition to these investigative 
requirements, a fingerprint check against the FBI criminal history 
database, an FBI investigations files (name check search), and a name 
check against the Terrorist Screening Database shall be required prior 
to CAC issuance in accordance with Office of Personnel Management 
Memorandum, ``Final Credentialing Standards for Issuing Personal 
Identity Verification Cards under HSPD-12.''
    (d) Identity and eligibility verification. In accordance with this 
part, identity and eligibility verification shall be completed at a 
RAPIDS workstation. VOs shall inspect identity and eligibility 
documentation and RAPIDS shall authenticate individuals to ensure that 
ID cards are provided only to those sponsored and who have a current 
affiliation with the DoD. RAPIDS shall also capture uniquely 
identifying characteristics that bind an individual to the information 
maintained in DEERS and to the ID card issued by RAPIDS. These 
characteristics may include, but are not limited to, digital 
photographs and fingerprints.
    (1) Identity documents. Applicants for initial ID card issuance 
shall submit two identity documents in original form as proof of 
identity. A VO at a RAPIDS workstation shall inspect and verify the 
documents presented by the applicant before ID card issuance. The 
identity documents must come from the list of acceptable documents 
included in the Form I-9 ``Employment Eligibility Verification'' 
(http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-9.pdf) in OMB No. 115-0136 or, for 
non-U.S. persons, other sources as outlined within paragraph 
(d)(1)(ii). ``Certified true'' copies of the identity documentation may 
be accepted so long as they have been issued by the originating source 
(e.g., a copy of a birth certificate may be acceptable so long as it 
has been certified as valid by the issuing State). In accordance with 
applicable law, at least one of the two identity documents shall be a 
valid (unexpired) State or Federal Government-issued picture ID. The 
identity documents shall be inspected for authenticity and scanned and 
stored in the DEERS in accordance with the DMDC, ``Real-time Automated 
Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS) User Guide'' upon issuance of 
an ID card. The requirement for the primary identity document to have a 
photo cannot be waived for initial ID card issuance, consistent with 
applicable statutory requirements. Identity documentation requirements 
for renewal or re-issuance are provided in paragraph (e)(3) of this 
section. When it has been determined that a CAC applicant has purposely 
misrepresented or not provided his or her true identity, the case shall 
be referred by the relevant RAPIDS Service Project office (SPO) to the 
sponsoring DoD Component organization. The DoD Component organization 
concerned shall initiate an investigation or provide appeals procedures 
as appropriate. Exceptions to the identity documentation requirements 
for initial ID card issuance are provided in paragraphs (d)(1)(i) and 
(d)(1)(ii) of this section:
    (i) Children. Children under the age of 18 applying for a dependent 
ID card are only required to provide documentation for the initial 
verification of eligibility or proof of relationship to the sponsor 
described in paragraph (d)(2) of this section.
    (ii) Documentation for non-U.S. persons. At foreign locations, 
eligible non-U.S. persons may not possess identity documentation from 
the Form I-9 required for ID card issuance. These individuals shall 
still provide personal ID as required by the intent of this paragraph 
(d)(1). Non-U.S. persons within the continental United States (CONUS) 
shall present a valid (unexpired) foreign passport as the primary form 
of identity source documentation. DoD organizations based outside the 
CONUS should work with the local consular affairs office to determine 
guidelines for the appropriate identity documentation for eligible non-
U.S. persons in accordance with agreements with host nations. It is 
recommended that a foreign passport be used as the primary form of 
identity source documentation for these individuals. The requirement 
for the primary identity document to have a photo cannot be waived. 
Additional documentation used to verify identity must be original or 
certified true copies. All documentation not in English must have a 
certified English translation.
    (2) Eligibility documents. ID card applicants may be required to 
provide documentation as initial verification of eligibility for 
benefits or proof of relationship to the sponsor. The eligibility 
documents shall be inspected for authenticity by the VO and scanned and 
stored in DEERS in accordance with the procedures in DMDC, ``Real-time 
Automated Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS) User Guide.'' 
Specifications and the types of documents and how they are utilized to 
verify eligibility for a member or dependent based on their status 
(e.g., Retired, Reservist, spouse, former spouse, child) shall be 
established by the uniformed services subject to the guidelines in this 
subpart. All documentation used to verify eligibility must be original 
or certified true copies. All documentation not in English must have a 
certified English translation. Eligibility documentation is not

[[Page 719]]

required when DEERS can verify eligibility via an authoritative source 
or process.
    (3) DEERS verification. The VO shall utilize DEERS to verify 
affiliation and eligibility for benefits as described in subpart C of 
this part.
    (4) Biometrics. In accordance with DoD Directive 1000.25, ID card 
applicants shall provide two fingerprint biometric scans and a facial 
image, to assist with authenticating the applicant's identity and to 
bind the information maintained on that individual in DEERS and to the 
ID card issued by RAPIDS. These requirements shall be integrated into 
the ID card issuance processes in the following manner:
    (i) A digitized, full-face passport-type photograph will be 
captured for the facial image and stored in DEERS and shall have a 
plain white or off-white background. No flags, posters, or other images 
shall appear in the photo. All ID cards issued will display a 
photograph.
    (ii) Two fingerprints are captured for storage within DEERS for 
applicable ID card applicants. The right and left index fingers shall 
normally be designated as the primary and secondary finger, 
respectively. However, if those fingers cannot be imaged, the primary 
and secondary designations shall be taken in the following order of 
priority: Right thumb, left thumb, right middle finger, left middle 
finger, right ring finger, left ring finger, right little finger, left 
little finger.
    (iii) If two fingerprints cannot be captured, the facial image will 
be the alternative for authenticating ID card applicants and ID card 
holders during the issuance process. Additionally, when verification or 
capture of biometrics is not possible, authorization will be provided 
by the RAPIDS SSM's digital signature. This transaction shall be 
subject to audit by DMDC and the uniformed services.
    (e) Issuance. In accordance with this part, ID cards shall be 
issued at the RAPIDS workstation after all sponsorship, enrollment and 
registration, background investigation (CAC only), and identity and 
eligibility verification requirements have been satisfied. Initial 
issuance of an ID card to an applicant will be contingent on satisfying 
the criteria in paragraphs (a) through (d) of this section.
    (1) Cross-servicing. The uniformed services agree to cross-service 
the issuance of ID cards when affiliation and eligibility can be 
verified in DEERS. When eligibility cannot be verified through DEERS, 
presentation of documentation shall be required. The uniformed services 
shall restrict cross-servicing for verification of the DD Form 1172-2 
and eligibility documentation to the parent uniformed service for the 
categories in paragraphs (e)(1)(i) through (viii) of this section:
    (i) Initial application for permanently incapacitated individuals 
over age 21 and temporarily incapacitated children over age 21.
    (ii) All dependent parents and parents-in-law.
    (iii) Illegitimate child of a male sponsor, whose paternity has not 
been judicially determined.
    (iv) Illegitimate child of spouse or sponsor.
    (v) Unremarried and unmarried former spouses applying for initial 
issuance of an ID card.
    (vi) Retiree from other services, and former members not currently 
enrolled in DEERS.
    (vii) Surviving dependents of Reserve Retirees on the sponsor's 
60th birthday.
    (viii) Abused dependents.
    (ix) Wards.
    (2) Expiration dates. (i) Except as noted in paragraphs 
(e)(2)(i)(A) and (B) of this section, CACs shall be issued for a period 
not to exceed 3 years from the date of issuance or contract expiration 
date, whichever is shorter. Unfunded contract options shall be 
considered in the determination of the length of contract. For example, 
a contractor hired under DoD contract with a base year plus 2 option 
years shall be issued a CAC with a 3-year expiration. The expiration 
date of the PKI certificates on the CAC shall match the expiration date 
on the card.
    (A) DD Form 1173, ``United States Uniformed Services ID and 
Privilege Card,'' or CACs issued to DoD civilian employees, 
contractors, and other eligible personnel assigned overseas or 
deploying in support of contingency operations shall have an expiration 
date coinciding with their deployment period end date.
    (B) Service Academy students shall be issued 4-year cards with 3-
year certificates.
    (ii) Non-CAC ID cards shall be given expiration dates in accordance 
with the guidance listed on http://www.cac.mil.
    (3) Renewal and reissuance. Consistent with applicable law, the 
applicant for ID renewal or reissuance shall be required to surrender 
the current DoD ID card that is up for renewal or reissuance except as 
indicated for lost and stolen ID cards in paragraph (e)(3)(iii) of this 
section. To authenticate renewal or reissuance applicants, the VO shall 
visually compare the applicant against the facial image stored in 
DEERS. For applicants who have fingerprint biometrics stored in DEERS, 
live fingerprint biometrics samples shall be checked against the 
applicant's DEERS record. If the biometric check confirms the identity 
of the renewal or reissuance applicant then no additional documentation 
is required to verify identity other than the ID card that is being 
renewed or reissued (documentation may still be required to verify or 
re-verify eligibility as described in paragraph (d)(2) of this 
section). As a general practice for renewal or re-issuance, two fresh 
fingerprint biometric captures may be stored for applicable personnel 
through the initial procedures in paragraph (d)(4)(ii) of this section 
to support DMDC's biometric update schedule.
    (i) An ID card holder may apply for a renewal starting 90 days 
prior to the expiration of a valid ID. The SPO can provide exceptions 
to this requirement.
    (ii) An ID card shall be reissued when printed information requires 
changes (e.g., pay grade, rank, change in eligibility), when any of the 
media (including printed data, magnetic stripe, bar codes, or 
integrated circuit chip) becomes illegible or inoperable, or when a CAC 
is known or suspected to be compromised.
    (iii) An ID card shall be reissued when it is reported lost or 
stolen. The individual reporting a lost or stolen ID card shall be 
required to provide a valid (unexpired) State or Federal Government-
issued picture ID as noted in paragraph (d)(1) of this section, 
consistent with applicable law, when available. If the individual is 
unable to present the required identity documentation, a biometric 
verification shall be used as proof of identity as described in 
paragraph (e)(3)(iii)(A) of this section. The VO shall verify the 
cardholder's identity against the biometric information stored in DEERS 
and confirm the expiration date of the missing ID card. The individual 
shall also be required to present documentation from the local security 
office or ID card sponsor confirming that the ID card has been reported 
lost or stolen. This documentation must be scanned and stored in DEERS. 
For dependents, the DD Form 1172-2 serves as the supporting 
documentation for a lost or stolen card. For individuals sponsored 
through TASS, the replacement ID card shall have the same expiration 
date as the lost or stolen card.
    (A) If no identity documentation is available but biometric 
information (facial image or fingerprint when applicable) in the DEERS 
database can be verified by the VO, an ID card can be reissued to the 
individual upon the additional approval of a SSM. This

[[Page 720]]

transaction shall be digitally signed and audited.
    (B) If biometric information cannot be verified, the requirements 
for initial issuance shall apply or a temporary card may be issued in 
accordance with paragraph (e)(4) of this section.
    (4) Temporary cards--(i) Temporary issuance of a CAC. During 
contingency operations, in the event there is no communication with the 
DEERS database or the certificate authority, a temporary CAC may be 
issued with an abbreviated expiration date for a maximum of 10 days. 
The temporary card will not have PKI certificates and will be replaced 
as soon as the member can reach an online RAPIDS station or 
communications have been restored. Additionally, the temporary CAC does 
not communicate or imply eligibility to any DoD benefit. This 
capability will be enabled only at affected RAPIDS sites and must have 
approval granted by DMDC.
    (ii) Temporary issuance of a Uniformed Services Identification 
card. There are multiple scenarios under which a temporary Uniformed 
Services Identification card may be issued. The uniformed services 
shall develop standard processes and procedures for scenarios requiring 
issuance of a temporary DD Forms 2765 ``Department of Defense/Uniformed 
Services Identification and Privilege Card'' or DD 1173, including but 
not limited to those situations where the applicant needs to obtain the 
necessary legal documentation or the sponsor is unavailable to provide 
an authorizing signature.
    (5) Multiple cards. Individuals shall be issued a separate ID card 
for each population category for which they qualify as described in 
Appendix 1 of this section. In instances where an individual has been 
issued more than one ID card (e.g., an individual that is eligible for 
an ID card as both a Reservist and as a DoD contractor employee), only 
the ID card that most accurately depicts the capacity in which the 
individual is affiliated with the DoD should be utilized at any given 
time.
    (f) Use and maintenance. In accordance with this part, ID cards 
shall be used as proof of identity and DoD affiliation to facilitate 
access to DoD facilities and systems. Additionally, ID cards shall 
represent authorization for entitled benefits and privileges in 
accordance with DoD policies. The CAC, as the DoD Federal PIV card, is 
governed and supported by additional policies and infrastructure when 
compared to non-CAC ID cards. This section provides additional guidance 
on CAC use and maintenance:
    (1) Access. The granting of access privileges is determined by the 
facility or system owner as prescribed by the DoD.
    (2) Accountability. CAC holders will maintain accountability of 
their CAC at all times while affiliated with the DoD.
    (3) PKI. Using the RAPIDS platform, DoD PKI identity and PIV 
authentication certificates will be issued on the CAC at the time of 
card issuance in compliance with OPM Memorandum, ``Final Credentialing 
Standards for Issuing Personal Identity Verification Cards under HSPD-
12.'' Email signature, email encryption, or PIV authentication 
certificates may also be available on the CAC either upon issuance or 
at a later time. If the person receiving a CAC does not have an 
organization email address assigned to them, they may return to a 
RAPIDS terminal or use milConnect to receive their email certificate 
when the email address has been assigned. To help prevent inadvertent 
disclosure of controlled information, email addresses assigned by an 
organization shall comply with DoD Instruction 8500.2, ``Information 
Awareness (IA) Implementation'' (available at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/850002p.pdf).
    (4) milConnect. DoD has a self-service Web site available that 
allows an authenticated CAC holder to add applets to the CAC, change 
the email address, add/update Email Signature and Email Encryption 
Certificates, and activate the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) 
Authentication certificate. This capability can be utilized from any 
properly configured UNCLASSIFED networked workstation. The milConnect 
Web site is https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect.
    (5) CAC Personal ID Number (PIN) Reset. DoD has manned workstations 
capable of resetting the PINs of a CAC holder with a locked card or 
forgotten PIN. These workstations are intended to provide alternative 
locations for CAC holders to service their cards other than RAPIDS 
issuance locations. To authenticate cardholders, live biometric samples 
shall be checked against the biometrics stored in DEERS prior to 
resetting CACs. This process requires the presence of a CPR trusted 
agent (CTA) or TASM or RAPIDS VO or SSM.
    (g) Retrieval and revocation. In accordance with this part, ID 
cards shall be retrieved by the sponsor or sponsoring organization when 
the ID card has expired, when it is damaged or compromised, or when the 
card holder is no longer affiliated with the DoD or no longer meets the 
eligibility requirements for the card. The active status of the card 
shall be terminated within the DEERS and RAPIDS infrastructure. The 
CAC, as the DoD Federal PIV card, is governed and supported by 
additional policies and infrastructure when compared to non-CAC ID 
cards. This section provides additional guidance on CAC retrieval and 
revocation:
    (1) CACs shall be retrieved as part of the normal organizational or 
command-level check-out processes. The active status of the CAC shall 
also be terminated in special circumstances (e.g., absent without 
leave, unauthorized absence, missing in action) in accordance with 
organization or command-level security policies.
    (2) The DoD sponsor or sponsoring organization is ultimately 
responsible for retrieving CACs from their personnel who are no longer 
supporting their organization or activity. CAC retrieval will be 
documented and treated as personally identifiable information, in 
accordance with DoD Regulation 5200.1-R, and 32 CFR part 310 and 
receipted to a RAPIDS site for disposition in a timely manner.
    (3) Upon loss, destruction, or revocation of the CAC, the

revocation list in accordance with Assistant Secretary of Defense for 
Networks and Information Integration Certificate Policy, ``X.509 
Certificate Policy for the United States Department of Defense'' 
(available at http://jitc.fhu.disa.mil/pki/documents/dod_x509_certificate_policy_v9_0_9_february_2005.pdf). All other 
situations that pertain to the disposition of the certificates are 
handled in accordance with Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks 
and Information Integration Certificate Policy, ``X.509 Certificate 
Policy for the United States Department of Defense'' as implemented.

Appendix 2 to Sec.  161.7--Topology Specifications

    (a) Topology. Graphical representations of all CACs are 
maintained at www.cac.mil.
    (b) CAC stripe color coding. The CAC shall be color-coded as 
indicated in the Table to reflect the status of the holder of the 
card.
    (1) If a person meets more than one condition as shown in the 
Table, priority will be given to the blue stripe to denote a non-
U.S. citizen unless the card serves as a Geneva Conventions card.
    (2) FIPS Publication 201-1 reserves the color red to distinguish 
emergency first responder officials. Until the DoD implementation of 
Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 is complete, the color 
red will also be used to denote non-U.S. personnel in the same 
manner as the blue stripe in the Table (i.e., some cards with red 
stripes may continue to exist in circulation until the 3-year life 
cycle is complete).

                     Table--CAC Stripe Color Coding

                                     Conventions card).
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (c) CAC printed statements--(1) Eligible individuals who are 
permanently assigned in foreign countries for at least 365 days (it 
should be noted that local nationals are in their home country, not 
a foreign country) will have the word ``OVERSEAS'' printed within 
the authorized patronage area of the CAC.

[[Page 723]]

    (2) The authorized patronage area for eligible individuals 
permanently assigned within CONUS will be blank. Travel orders 
authorize access for these individuals while en route to the 
deployment site.
    (3) During a conflict, combat, or contingency operation, 
civilian employees with a U.S. DoD or Uniformed Services Geneva 
Conventions ID Card for Civilians Accompanying the Uniformed 
Services will be granted all commissary; exchange; MWR; and medical 
privileges available at the site of the deployment, regardless of 
the statements on the ID card. Contractor employees possessing this 
ID card shall receive the benefit of those commissary, exchange, 
MWR, and medical privileges that are accorded to such persons by 
international agreements in force between the United States and the 
host country concerned and their letter of authorization.
    (4) The medical area on the card for individuals on permanent 
assignment in a foreign country will contain the statement: ``When 
TAD/TDY or stationed overseas on a space available fully 
reimbursable basis.'' However, civilian employees and contractor 
employees providing support when forward deployed during a conflict, 
combat, or contingency operation are treated in accordance with 10 
U.S.C. 10147 and chapters 1209 and 1223 and DoD Instruction 3020.41, 
``Operational Contract Support'' (available at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/302041p.pdf), and the Deputy Secretary of 
Defense Memorandum, ``Policy Guidance for Provision of Medical Care 
to Department of Defense Civilian Employees Injured or Wounded While 
Forward Deployed in Support of Hostilities'' (available at http://cpol.army.mil/library/nonarmy/dod_092407.pdf).
    (d) Blood type indicators. A blood type indicator is an optional 
data element on the ID card and will only appear on the card if the 
blood type is provided by an authoritative data source prescribed by 
TRICARE Management Activity.
    (e) Organ donor indicators. An organ donor indicator is an 
optional data element on the ID card and will only appear if the 
card applicant opts for this feature at the time of card issuance.

Sec.  161.8  ID card life-cycle roles and responsibilities.

    (a) General. This section provides the roles and responsibilities 
associated with a series of processes and systems that support the ID 
card life-cycle. The requirements provided in this section may be 
supplemented by military Service guidance, DoD Component-level 
procedures and DMDC procedural and system documentation on DEERS, 
RAPIDS, TASS, and CPR.
    (b) Separation of duties. The ID card life-cycle includes a 
requirement for a separation of duties to support the issuance process. 
This rule requires more than one person to serve in an official role 
during the sponsorship and enrollment and issuance processes. 
Authorizing a RAPIDS SSM or VO to exercise the duties of a TASS TASM, 
TA, or sponsor would allow a single individual to control the ID card 
issuance process, from record creation to card issuance. Individuals 
serving in the role of a RAPIDS SSM or VO shall not exercise the role 
of the TASS TASM or TA or the role of the signatory sponsor on the DD 
Form 1172-2. (In the case of their own dependents, a RAPIDS SSM or VO 
can serve as the sponsor on the DD Form 1172-2 but cannot serve as the 
VO for card issuance.)
    (c) DD Form 1172-2. The DD Form 1172-2 shall be used to collect the 
information necessary to register ID card and CAC applicants in DEERS 
via RAPIDS who are not enrolled through an authorized personnel data 
feed or are not registered through TASS. The DD Form 577, 
``Appointment/Termination Record--Authorized Signature,'' shall be used 
to verify the sponsoring individual's signature, when verification 
through RAPIDS is unavailable. This form is to be used primarily for 
DEERS enrollment and verification of initial and continued association 
for dependents and DoD affiliates (e.g., foreign national military). 
The DD Form 1172-2 shall also be used to add benefits conditions for 
eligible personnel in accordance with DMDC, ``Real-time Automated 
Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS) User Guide'' and subpart C of 
this part. Retention and disposition of the DD Form 1172-2 shall be in 
accordance with the uniformed services' regulatory instructions. In the 
absence of electronic verification of sponsorship for the enrollment or 
reenrollment of dependents, the sponsor signing block 65 in Section 5 
of the DD Form 1172-2 for the ID card applicant:
    (1) Shall be a uniformed services member, retiree, civilian 
employee working for the sponsoring organization, or an individual 
entitled to DoD benefits in their own right, without requiring 
relationship to another sponsor, as described in subpart C of this 
part.
    (2) Must be a DoD ID card or CAC holder.
    (3) Shall establish the applicant's initial and continued 
relationship to the sponsor, affiliation with DoD, and need for a CAC 
card in accordance with this subpart and DoD Component-level 
procedures.
    (d) TASS. TASS shall serve as the sponsorship and DEERS data 
registration tool for CAC-eligible DoD contractors and other 
populations as determined by the Director, DHRA. TASS employs an 
automated version of the DD Form 1172-2 to collect information 
necessary for DEERS enrollment. Organizations that use TASS shall 
adhere to the following guidelines on user roles:
    (1) Service Point of Contact (SPOC). A DoD Component that utilizes 
TASS shall appoint a SPOC for TASS management and operation. The SPOC 
shall coordinate with the DMDC to establish a site with TASS 
capability. The SPOC shall create policies, operating procedures, and 
other supporting documentation in support of the Service or agency-
specific implementation. The SPOC will oversee TASM registration, and 
provide any other required field support. The TASS SPOC:
    (i) Must be a U.S. citizen.
    (ii) Must be a uniformed services member, civilian employee working 
for the sponsoring organization, or a DoD contractor providing 
management support to the service or agency implementing TASS (a 
contractor cannot perform the TA or TASM role).
    (iii) Must be capable of sending and receiving digitally signed and 
encrypted email.
    (iv) Must be a CAC holder.
    (v) Shall complete the training provided by DMDC for the TASM and 
TA roles.
    (2) TASM. The TASM will act as a TA and oversee the activity for 
TASS site TAs. A TASS TASM:
    (i) Must be a U.S. citizen.
    (ii) Must be a uniformed services member or a DoD civilian employee 
working for the sponsoring organization.
    (iii) Must be capable of sending and receiving digitally signed and 
encrypted email.
    (iv) Must be a CAC holder.
    (v) Shall complete the training provided by DMDC for the TASM role.
    (3) TA. TAs shall be sponsors for eligible populations within TASS 
and will utilize TASS to register data for the DD Form 1172-2, re-
verify CAC holder affiliation, and revoke CACs in accordance with this 
part and the DMDC ``Contractor Verification System TASS (CVS) TASM/TA 
and Applicant User Guides, Version 3.03'' (available at https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/appj/cvs/login). Sponsoring an applicant is a multi-
step process which includes establishing the individual's eligibility 
in accordance with paragraph (a) of Sec.  161.7 of this subpart and 
verifying that the individual has the necessary background 
investigation completed to be issued a CAC in accordance with paragraph 
(c) of Sec.  161.7 of this subpart. A TASS TA:
    (i) Must be a U.S. citizen.
    (ii) Must be a uniformed services member, a DoD civilian employee 
working for the sponsoring organization,

[[Page 724]]

or a non DoD Federal agency employee approved by DHRA.
    (iii) Must be capable of sending and receiving digitally signed and 
encrypted email.
    (iv) Must be a CAC holder.
    (v) Shall complete the training provided by DMDC for the TA role.
    (vi) Shall manage no more than 100 active contractors at any given 
time within TASS. Exceptions to this limit can be authorized by the DoD 
Component concerned to address specific contract requirements that 
substantiate a need for a larger contractor-to-TA ratio. The DoD 
Component SPOC shall document any authorized exceptions to the 100-
contractors limit and shall, at a minimum, conduct annual audits on the 
oversight functions of these specific TAs.
    (vii) Shall coordinate with their contracting personnel when 
establishing the contractor's initial and continued affiliation with 
DoD and need for CACs in accordance with agency or Component-level 
procedures.
    (viii) Shall coordinate with their contracting, human resources, or 
personnel security organizations to confirm that the appropriate 
background check has been completed for CAC applicants.
    (ix) Shall re-verify a CAC holder's need for a CAC every 6 months 
(180 days) within TASS.
    (x) Shall revoke the CAC within the TASS upon termination of 
employment or completion of affiliation with the DoD.
    (xi) Shall ensure that the CAC is retrieved upon the CAC holder's 
termination of employment or completion of affiliation with the DoD.
    (e) RAPIDS. RAPIDS must be operated in accordance with DMDC, 
``Real-time Automated Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS) User 
Guide.'' RAPIDS shall be supported by:
    (1) SSM. The SSM shall manage the daily operations at a RAPIDS site 
to include managing users, cardstock, and consumables. The SPO shall 
assign a primary and secondary SSM to each site to ensure the site 
continues to function in the absence of one of the SSMs. The SSM shall 
perform all responsibilities of a RAPIDS user (VO), as well as all SSM 
responsibilities. The SSM shall:
    (i) Be a U.S. citizen.
    (ii) Be a uniformed services member, civilian employee working for 
the sponsoring organization, or a DoD contractor.
    (iii) Be a CAC holder.
