On-Site Access & Computing Accounts

Prior to obtaining computing privileges and/or a Fermilab ID badge, it is a requirement to fill out a request form. The FVA Office is responsible for reviewing requests of all non-U.S. citizens. Detailed information on the process can be found on the Global Service’s website.

Please note that Nonproprietary User Agreements (NPUAs) are required before individuals can work on-site on experiments associated with the Fermilab accelerator complex or CMS. Additional information can be found here.

DOE policy requires all non-U.S. citizens to provide their complete curriculum vitae (CV) when requesting access (U.S. citizens, subcontractors, and authorized guests are exempt).

Requests from non-U.S. citizens are routed to the FVA Office for review and approval. Concurrently, a review by the Export/Import Control Office is completed, as detailed below.

Export Control Review

Fermilab follows the United States Department of Energy (DOE) policies, orders, and contract requirements and is committed to strict adherence to all United States export control laws and regulations (“export control laws”). A major component of this commitment is screening on-site and computer access to Fermilab and its resources against individuals and entities identified by export control laws as denied or restricted parties. The Export/Import Control Compliance Manager and other trade compliance team members conduct these screening reviews and uphold other, necessary compliance policies, procedures, and processes. For any questions regarding Export/Import Control, please contact exportcontrol@listserv.fnal.gov
