At the July CMMC town hall, there were two major announcements concerning Department of Defense contractors and possible supply chain partners:
- Voluntary assessments have begun. The assessments are being accredited by C3PAOs with supervision from DIBCAC. The assessments will convert into CMMC assessments upon the completion of CMMC Rule Making anticipated to go into effect in March 2023.
- Secondly, the CMMC Assessment Process (CAP) was released in draft form. The CAP is what assessors will follow to ensure consistency, accuracy and quality for assessments.
These two announcements indicate rapid movement toward the implementation of CMMC. To achieve compliance, the process can take from nine months to over a year. If your business is involved with the DoD, we strongly recommend contacting us to see where you stand. Call us at 951-319-4080.
