This condition decreases the ability to communicate through mass page in dire circumstances. Currently there is no information on the cause for the system issues and what is needed for the individual building pages and campus wide pages to work. There shall be a warranty on all work for one year from the contractor upon completion and the work is accepted by user.

When reporting to the registration office, the authorized contractor individual(s) should provide a valid driver's license, current vehicle registration, and valid vehicle insurance certificate to obtain a vehicle pass. Government ID card holders may not use their credentials to sponsor an individual on to the base to perform work that's been contracted to an official contractor.

During performance of the service, the contractor shall be responsible for obtaining required identification for newly assigned personnel and for prompt return of credentials for any employee who no longer requires access to the work site.

All commercial vehicles will be directed to Gate 3 (Kelly St) or Gate 4 (Congressman Dickenson for Gunter) for processing through the Commercial Vehicle Inspection (CVI) Area, when operational. During non-duty hours and holidays, commercial vehicle inspections will be conducted at Gate 1 (Maxwell Blvd) or Gate 4 only. Inspection members will conduct thorough inspections of the interior and exterior of the vehicle for items prohibited from the installation such as explosive devices, weapons and ammunition, drugs, and open or closed alcohol containers.

These checks are conducted for the purpose of safeguarding the base and protecting government property by discovering and seizing stolen property, classified information and contraband. Refusal to submit to an installation (entry/exit) vehicle check may result in the loss of base driving privileges, revocation of base registration, or debarment action.
