I have to admit (now I've been sent some information off-list) that I 
didn't realise the co-lo security were holding onto the "badge" (or 
access card or whatever) the whole time the tech was on the premises. 
Yes, that would give more opportunities for bad things to happen. In 
many years of gaining access to secured buildings I've only ever had 
that happen once (passport exchanged for a visitor's pass, and back 
again at the end of the day).
