Security Policy Change Reminder

Published April 13, 2021

Effective April 15, Security (O15) will start issuing badges to Newport News Shipbuilding suppliers with a Restricted Data (RD) indicator.

NNS contractors and suppliers were notified via a Jan. 13 memo that any visitor requiring access to RD areas at the shipyard must be indoctrinated with RD in the government’s system for maintaining security clearances. NNS contractors and suppliers currently possessing the old badges with RD area access will have to change out to the new RD badges no later than Dec. 31.
