NIH maintains a number of off-site facilities, some in other states and others within driving distance of the main NIH Bethesda campus.  Individuals at these satellite locations can still contact the DPSAC help desks for assistance. The out-of-state facilities maintain their own badge enrollment centers where applicants are fingerprinted and photographed. Other nearby off-campus facilities host regularly scheduled enrollment sessions conducted by DPSAC staff using portable photo and fingerprinting equipment.
