SERMC VISIT REQUEST PROCEDURAL POLICIES
The Southeast Regional Maintenance Center (SERMC) Mayport Security Office processes (reviews and distributes) visit requests for contractor and government agency personnel that require access to U.S. Navy vessels residing or visiting in the Jacksonville/Mayport area. In addition, SERMC also processes visit requests for access to private shipyards, during CNO Availabilities, for the performance of general maintenance work under NAVSEA contracts, and for the performance of AITs. SERMC visit request procedures and policies are in compliance with DOD, SECNAV, OPNAV, and NAVSEA instructions/directives, as well as applicable local/regional requirements. Note: All visit request requirements must be met or access may be denied.
SUBMISSION OF SERMC (CONTRACTOR/GOVERNMENT) VISIT REQUESTS TO THE SERMC SECURITY OFFICE
Safe Access File Exchange (SAFE) Program
To prevent potential PII breaches, and to minimize potential incidents and practices that could prove dangerous to security, the SERMC Security Office will not process visit requests derived from personal e-mail accounts (.com). Non-Government, non-Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) account holders, and any NMCI customers with encryption problems are required to send their SERMC Visit Request forms through the Safe Access File Exchange (SAFE) to the email@example.com e-mail address. Detailed information regarding the Safe Access File Exchange (SAFE) program can be found at http://www.doncio.navy.mil/ContentView.aspx?id=4098. The Safe Access File Exchange (SAFE) program to submit SERMC Government/Contractor Visit Request forms can be accessed at https://safe.amrdec.army.mil.
VISIT (UNCLASSIFIED) REQUESTS TO SERMC
JPAS SMO Code – N40027:
For visits to SERMC (only), please use the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS) to submit your visit request. It is the responsibility of the visitor to coordinate their visit with the correct SERMC point of contact (POC). The name, phone number and reason for the visit should be entered into the proper fields on the JPAS page. The SERMC Security staff should NOT be used as your JPAS point of contact, unless previously coordinated. All visit requests listing the SERMC Security staff as the POC will be denied/returned for correction.
VISIT (CLASSIFIED) REQUESTS TO SERMC
JPAS SMO Code – N40027:
Classified visits will only be accepted and processed through JPAS. Classified information will only be disclosed during visits provided the visitor possesses the appropriate security clearance, access level, and have a need-to-know. The establishment of the need-to-know will be the responsibility of the individual who will be disclosing the classified material to the visitor(s). Before a classified visit is approved, the SERMC CSM will perform the required vetting procedures to verify that visiting personnel have been granted the appropriate security clearance and level of access by using the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS).
JOINT VISIT REQUESTS TO SERMC & TO MAYPORT HOMEPORTED VESSELS
For joint visits to SERMC and to any of the vessels home ported at NAVSTA Mayport, the Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS) may be used.
However, as a preferred method, when visiting both SERMC and a Mayport home ported vessel, a SERMC Contractor/Government Visit Request form may be submitted to the SERMC Security Office via the SAFE program for processing, to include forwarding the visit request to the applicable vessel(s).
MSR PRIVATE SHIPYARD ACCESS:
Visit requests for vessels docked/residing in private ship yards must be forwarded to the SERMC Security office via the SAFE program to: firstname.lastname@example.org for processing. Forwarding your visit request by e-mail to this command will facilitate the timely approval of the request, and ultimately, your access to Naval Station Mayport, the MSR site and the ship. Sending your visit request directly to either the ship or to the Naval Station Mayport Pass and ID Office, will delay the approval of your visit. It is also important to understand that if the ship is located at a private shipyard that their specific policies and procedures must also be complied with.
