NEW COMPANY SETUP

This information is for all new companies/contractors/vendors wishing to obtain a Security ID Badge for the Atlantic City International Airport.

New Company Introduction

This information will introduce your company to the Security ID Badge procedures at the Atlantic City International Airport. Once your company has been awarded a contract to begin work at the Airport, a company representative (Human Resources, Owner, etc) must complete a Signatory Letter.  This letter is a template that must be completed on your company letterhead and include contact information and email address. This letter will introduce your company to the airport, reference the project/business associated with your company and will include the signature of the company representative that can authorize requests for security ID badges and employment certification. This authorized company representative will become the signatory for your company.

An AuthorizedSignatory is the person who coordinates the Security ID Badge process for your company, signs page 3 of the badge application certifying employment, has access to the Authorized Signatory Portal

and will be the person responsible for security ID badges issued to your company. In order to become an authorized signatory, you must complete a Criminal History Record Check, Security Threat Assessment, SIDA Training Test and the Signatory Training Program. This training will communicate the signatory’s responsibilities and duties, provide the signatory an opportunity to ask questions concerning their responsibilities and requires the signatory to certify they have completed and understand the training. The signatory training is required annually. The signatory must remain active for your company. Should the signatory no longer be active or with your company, they must be replaced immediately. Companies without a current active signatory may have all the security ID badges for their company deactivated until such time as an active signatory is replaced. A signatory must complete the entire process before any others from their company may start the Security ID Badge process.

Once the authorized signatory has completed the required training, you will be given access to the authorized signatory portal. The authorized signatory portal will give you access to a web based site to input an applicant’s biographical information and initiate the security ID badge process. From this portal you will be able to print the security ID badge application. This application must be completed for each individual requesting a security ID badge. The authorized signatory must sign page 3 of the application. For the signatory’s application, the signatory must sign for themselves. Upon completion of the application, call Airport Operations at (609) 645-7895 ext 4702 to make a fingerprint appointment. Fingerprinting is done Monday-Friday 9am–3pm. At the time of the fingerprint, the applicant must bring the completed application, a credit card, certified check or money order (cash is not accepted) made out to South Jersey Transportation Authority and two (2) forms of identification listed on Page 6 of badge application.

The badge approval process could take up to two (2) weeks. You will be contacted by the ACY Badge Office to inform you of the status of your application. Once approved, a testing appointment can be made with Airport Operations at (609) 645-7895 ext 4702. Upon successful completion of the applicable tests, a security ID badge will be issued.
The Airport will conduct a randomaudit of all security ID badges issued as required by Transportation Security Administration Regulation 1542. At that time, the airport will electronically send a list of employees that have been issued badges from your company using the authorized signatory portal. The authorized signatory will be responsible for completing the audit and provide the following information for all listed employees:

  • Employment status (badge must be returned if no longer employed)
  • Location of badge (returned to company, retained by employee, lost etc)
  • Badge updated if still employed (do not let badge expire for more than 30 days)

 

If you have any questions about the badging process, please contact (609) 645-7895 ext 4702.
