State Employee ID Cards

Central Duplicating provides identification cards for state employees and for individuals serving on boards and commissions or who perform other official functions on behalf of a state agency. Cards issued to state employees expire 10 years from date of issue and must be turned in to the issuing agency upon the employee's leaving state employment. Cards issued to individuals serving on behalf of a state agency expire when the individual's term or appointment expires.

All requests for ID cards must be e-mailed to csd@nd.gov by the issuing agency. When requesting a card for non-state employee, please include the expiration date of the individual's term. It is preferred that the request be submitted to Central Duplicating prior to the individual's coming to have his or her picture taken.

Agencies will be billed monthly for ID cards as follows:

  • $7.00 - ID card only
  • $5.00 - Additional photos or key access photo

Ordering instructions

  • E-mail the excel file to csd@nd.gov.
