A key publication regarding issuing of identification cards has undergone a rewrite, which will affect dependents of civilians and retirees looking to access Hill Air Force Base.
DoDM 1000.13, Vol 2, DoD Identification (ID) Cards: Benefits for Members of the Uniformed Services, Their Dependents, and Other Eligible Individuals, was changed, omitting authority to issue ID cards to dependents of civilian employees and dependents of retired civilian employees.
Effective immediately, Hill AFB will no longer issue long-term DBIDS IDs to dependents of civilian employees and dependents of retired civilian employees based solely on dependency. IDs currently in issue will be considered valid until the expiration date is reached.
Installation access may still be requested and is contingent on proper sponsorship, identity proofing, vetting and a valid justification to enter. For example, civilian dependents living in privatized housing on base would likely be granted a long-term DBIDs card.
The rules also specifically prohibit commissary, exchange, and MWR privileges for these same groups. These changes can be traced back to Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12, which is an executive directive to reduce the numbers and types of identification credentials used for access to government facilities and information systems.
Access to MWR facilities for dependents of civilian employees and dependents of retired civilian employees was previously delegated to installation commanders, but that delegation was rescinded at the DOD level.
Sponsors with a CAC and access to the base intranet can request to sponsor visitors using the 75th Security Forces Visitor SharePoint site: https://cs.eis.afmc.af.mil/sites/Hill/VCC/default.aspx
Personnel who do not have access to this SharePoint site, but are otherwise authorized to sponsor individuals, can request a short-term pass (1-60 days) in person at any of the Visitor Control Center at the gates. For long-term passes (61-365 days), they must report to the Pass and ID Desk in Building 408 (behind the BX) to request issuance of a Long-Term Visitor Identification.
The 75the Security Forces Squadron commander has the authority to disapprove requests for long-term visitor DBIDS IDs based on insufficient/ invalid needs — an appeal can be made via memorandum through the 75the SFS to the 75th Mission Support Group commander for final determination.
