Attendees must be US citizens and possess a minimum SECRET clearance at the time of event registration.**
Attendees WITH IC blue or green badges do not need to pass clearances.*** Please verify with your badging office that your IC badge is enabled to work at NGA facilities.
Attendees WITHOUT IC blue or green badges must arrange for their Special Security Officer (SSO) or Contractor Special Security Officer (CSSO) to send an SSO- or CSSO- originated clearance certification message to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
The clearance message must be on official letterhead and include the following:
*Authority for soliciting Social Security Numbers (SSAN) is Executive Order 9397. SSAN’s will be used to identify attendees within the NGA’s access approval system. Disclosure of a SSAN is voluntary, but failure to do so may result in delay or denial of access to the NGA VCC.
**The NGA does not grant interim SECRET access--applicants for registration must be cleared SECRET. The NGA will not provide any "read-in/read-out" security services.
***Event attendees whether IC badged or not must process through the visitor center to obtain a conference center badge.
Security Officers should pass clearances via:
Unclassified Email: WorkforceSupportCenter@nga.mil (preferred method)
Secure Email: WorkforceSupportCenter@nga.ic.gov
Clearance Deadline: May 19, 2014
Timely passage of your clearance/accesses is important. If your clearance is not passed as required, you will not be able to attend the event.
All event attendees will be required to show a valid state or federal issued photo identification (i.e. a drivers license, state identification card, passport).
