Summary of Information Collection
Respondents are DoD personnel assigned to Security Forces units who provide visitor passes for installation access and restricted area badges for controlled and restricted area access. SFMIS maintains personal information such as: Full names, Social Security Numbers (SSN); date of birth, home address, phone numbers, alias; race ethnicity, sex, height, weight, eye hair color, and any approved document (must be a picture ID) that is accepted as proof of identity, it must not be expired and has to be valid. SFMIS provides Restricted Area Badge creation and Installation Access Control in those cases where DBIDS is not fully deployed.
The Badge/ID panel in the Pass & ID Module is used to record restricted and controlled area badges or identification cards using the information collected on the AF 2586. SFMIS will maintain an inventory on the stored data and create an Entry Authority List (EAL) or Master Entry Authority List (MEAL). SFMIS also prints restricted area badges, maintains the inventory and prints a destruction certificate for destroyed restricted area badges.
This Visitor Pass panel in the Pass & ID Module is used to complete visitor pass requests and view and print the AF Form 75. An electronic signature pad can be set up with SFMIS to capture the visitor's electronic signature. Visitor passes can be completed two different ways. First, SF personnel can create a new visitor pass for a customer by entering the visitor's information into the system. Secondly, SF personnel can search the system for a pending web registration or kiosk request; select the name in the search results grid and it will populate the panel with the existing information. Visitor passes are stored in SFMIS for a 90 day period. During these 90 days, previously issued visitor passes can be recalled. Visitor passes may be recalled as an investigative tool or it can be used to issue a new pass based on the previous information.
