GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. This MARADMIN is a coordinated DC I, DC M&RA, and DC PP&O message which provides revised guidance to Ref (A) for Marine Corps personnel who hold a CAC expiring on or before September 30 2020.
2. BACKGROUND. In response to COVID-19, the Marine Corps remains committed to ensuring the health and safety of all personnel and beneficiaries and ensuring continued access to facilities, logical resources and all authorized benefits. Ref (B) outlines DoD policy in effect until June 30 2021 for ensuring the availability of ID cards while resuming operations at Real-Time Automated Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS) sites and issues a directive that expired CACs will no longer be accepted past 30 September 2020, cancelling previous guidance.
3. IMPACT. During the period until new CAC is issued, expired CAC holders will not be able to cryptographically logon to the MCEN, access PKI-enabled resources and websites (e.g. MOL and GCSS-MC), digitally sign/encrypt email or read encrypted emails. Physical access to installations, Exchange, and Commissary services may be impeded.
4.A. DC PP&O PS
4.A.1. Develop and publish Marine Corps physical access
control policy and procedures to comply with Ref (B) and
(C) for CACs and for USIDs expiring on or after January 1 2020, and USID expiring on or after June 1 2021 and de-conflict date disparities.
4.B. DC M&RA (MFP-1):
4.B.1. Ensure all Marine Corps Real-Time Automated Personnel Identification System (RAPIDS) sites are aware of and comply with policy outlined in Ref (B) and (D) to support personnel requiring a DOD ID card renewals, Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) initial enrollments, and DEERS records updates.
4.B.2. CAC transactions shall resume normal issuance or reissuance upon release of this message.
4.B.3. USID cards which expired on or after January 1 2020 are authorized for continued benefit use through June 30 2021.
4.B.4. Termination of card holder affiliation with the DoD or termination of benefit eligibility shall be verified electronically prior to confiscating an expired USID card with an expiration date on or after January 1 2020.
4.C. Commanders, Fleet Marine Force and Supporting Establishment:
4.C.1. Direct all Marine Corps CAC holders with cards expiring on or before September 30 2020 to acquire a replacement CAC as soon as practical at a RAPIDS site. The RAPIDS Site Locator can be found at https:(slash slash)www.dmdc.osd.mil/rsl/, and contains instructions for documentation required for obtaining a CAC in accordance with Ref (D).
4.C.2. Direct personnel to follow the guidelines of their local RAPIDS office with regard to any restrictions on walk-in appointments and scheduling requirements due to COVID-19. Scheduling and site specific information can be found on the RAPIDS Appointment Scheduler at https:(slash)(slash)rapids-appointments.dmdc.osd.mil.
4.C.3. Reinforce policy to allow transferring civilians to retain their CACs.
