In April 2017, Naval Base Guam (NBG) began transitioning from using the Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS) to the Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS) for contractors, sub-contractors, vendors, suppliers, and service providers with DoD sponsorship, approved to conduct business with the Navy and/or tenants aboard NBG who are not eligible for a Common Access Card (CAC).  There is no cost for a DBIDs card.

DBIDS is a Department of Defense (DoD) system developed by the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) as a force protection program designed to manage personnel, property and installation access for the DOD.

DBIDS increases installation security and communications by receiving frequent database updates on changes to personnel/credential status, law enforcement warrants, lost/stolen cards, and force protection conditions.  The system provides a continuous vetting anytime the DBIDS card is scanned at an installation entry point.
