Contractors and Vendors
Elevated security measures may affect access. All vehicles are subject to search prior to entry and while aboard the installation. Photography and videography are prohibited unless authorized by the Installation Commander. MCAS New River is a No Drone Zone per MCIEAST-MCB CAMLEJO 3710.30B.

Marine Corps Air Station New River looks forward to working with its authorized partners. In order efficiently process contractors and vendors seeking access, there are several screening options available:

PLEASE NOTE: Per MCO 5530.13 and DoD Manual 5200.08 V3, driver's licenses and identification cards marked “not valid for federal purposes,” “federal limits may apply,” or any other similar language may not be accepted by DoD for the purpose of unescorted access (i.e. to obtain a Visitor Pass or DBIDS Credential).

  • ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION (PREFERRED):  This process is the most efficient and prevents contractors or vendors from having to visit the CVO until their credentials are ready to be issued. Companies or employees should email their requests to for a secure upload link to the DoD SAFE website. Upon successful completion of a background check and data entry, customers will be contacted to schedule an appointment to obtain their credential or pass. Please follow the process on this flowchart.
  • COMPANY DROP-OFF SERVICE:  This paper-based process is also efficient and prevents companies from having to make multiple visits to the CVO until their credentials are ready to be issued. Company representatives should drop off completed employee packages at the CVO. A future appointment can be scheduled to pick-up your pass or credential upon approval. Customers will be notified if a background check is adverse.
  • CUSTOMER DROP-OFF SERVICE: Individual customers may drop off their access request package at the CVO if they do not meet the criteria for the two previous processes. If immediate access to the installation is needed, the customer may go to the Visitor Center or Piney Green Contractor Vetting Office (commercial vehicles only) to receive a temporary pass. A future appointment can be scheduled at drop-off to pick-up your pass or credential, upon approval.
  • ONE-TIME DROP-OFF/PICK-UP:  All individuals in this category must visit the Piney Green CVO satellite office, Building 979, next to the Piney Green Gate, to receive a DBIDS temporary pass and vehicle inspection. Individuals visiting the installation to pick up and drop off shipments can use their bill of lading,  printed delivery order, or printed pick-up order for requesting access. All personnel will still undergo a background check before being issued a temporary pass.
  • FOOD/NON-FOOD VENDORS:  Individuals wishing to deliver goods or sell goods on the installation, without a contract, must follow an approval process prior to requesting base access. For information regarding this process, please contact the Station Adjutant at 910-449-5478.
