The process is time consuming and at this point the badges are not needed by 95% of those getting them. Instead of putting a expiration date on the badge leave them open and it will not need to be redone every two years. This would save not only in the individual cost of the badge but the travel cost and lost work time to get the badge.
The system-wide use of the PIV (identification card) should be expanded to embrace time-keeping. The card should ideally have personal identification information sufficient to manage time when on-duty, and expand to other uses for security access, and retail charges in Canteen Services.
