Returning Your Badge When Leaving NIH
If you plan to leave the employ of NIH, whether you’re an employee, contractor or affiliate, you will need to turn in your HHS ID Badge to your Administrative Officer so that s/he can deactivate your badge in NED. The AO will turn over the deactivated badge to the badging office.
The requirement to collect the badge as part of the check-out process for all employees, contractors and affiliates leaving NIH is stated in the NIH Policy Manual under ORH (2300-940-Clearance of Personnel for Separation), posted at: http://oma.od.nih.gov/manualchapters/person/2300-940/.
If moving from one IC to another, you may keep your HHS ID Badge/PIV card; however, you may need access to new physical locations. In that case your AO should contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
