DoD civilian personnel must be entered into the Dependent Eligibility Enrollment System (DEERS). This is accomplished by the receiving Civilian Personnel Office (CPO). Following DEERS entry by the CPO, DARPA can issue the CAC to the individual. Please note that it takes approximately 48 hours for the system to "accept" the data. The system must accept the data before the CAC can be issued.
- Two forms of ID in original form. Both IDs must be current and among those listed on the I-9 Form (960k, PDF). One of the IDs must bear a photo (for example, a passport or a driver's license).
- A six (6) to eight (8) digit number to use as a Personal Identification Number (PIN). It should not be a number derived from something easily known about you such as part of your SSN, birthday or anniversary date of you or a family member, telephone number, or address.
- Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment time. Arriving late may result in cancellation of your appointment. If there are any problems or questions, please contact the DARPA CAC Office at 571-218-4270 or email the CAC System Administrator.
