LANL has quietly started issuing new badges to employees this week. The Badge Office has an item on their website dated 3/3/08 at this link:
"In response to Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 (HSPD-12), most L- and Q-cleared workers at LANL will soon have new badges." I am attaching a picture of the new badges. There is no color-coding of clearance level.
For those without yellow net access, the Badge Office provides a link to the USAccess Program homepage.
Also, cynically minded readers may want to check out the pricing information:
Last time we rebadged from O'Leary green back to color-coded badges, there were posters in every building, multiple announcements and reminders, and so on. This time... nothing. I doubt it's a conspiracy, just more LANS incompetence.
