This page provides valuable information on initiating the in-processing and out processing of a contractor at NIWC Atlantic.
The new SWAT Check-Out application is planned for release in July 2023. This new tool will replace the 5500_3 Contractor Check List Form for contractors checking out of NIWC Atlantic. All contractors with access to the SWAT Check-In application will automatically have access to the SWAT Check-Out application. Trainings and announcements will be available closer to go live.
Contractors performing work on a NIWC Atlantic contract must receive a Common Access Card (CAC) if physical or logical (Information Technology (IT)) access is required. Requests for CACs, space allocation, IT accounts, assets and facilities access (badge) are submitted via the Check-In Application in the SWAT Tool.
Contractors no longer performing work for a NIWC Atlantic contract must be checked out of the command via the Check-Out Application in the SWAT Tool. The contractor must ensure the employee returns all applicable Government credentials (keys, CAC, site badges, tokens, etc.), ensure any assigned Government-furnished property (e.g., laptops) are returned to the appropriate locations, and all procedures are followed (see step by step guide located in the SWAT Check-Out application).
A SWAT Check-In account is required to request contractor check-in processing. Instructions for obtaining an account can be found in the Access Instruction Guide.
When requesting IT accounts and facilities access, the following training and documentation is required and should be attached to the SWAT Check-In request.
CAC appointments may be scheduled once the NIWC Atlantic Trusted Agent has emailed approval and instructions to the contractor applicant.
Contractors with access to the SWAT Check-In application will automatically receive access to the SWAT Check-Out application. The contractor is responsible for the return of government property and will be held responsible for any outstanding procedures not completed at the time of Check-Out. Please see the step-by-step guide located in the SWAT Check-Out application.
