The US Department of Defense has published the Self-Assessment Guide for CMMC Level 1. Under CMMC 2.0, the Level 1 assessments are performed by the contractor/organization and do not require third-party validation or certification. However, the organization will need to submit an attestation, signed by a senior executive, that the organization has conducted its assessment in accordance with the Assessment Guide.

The CMMC 2.0 Level 1 Assessment Guide can be downloaded from the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s website. You can view the PDF copy directly via this link.

You can also use our free self-assessment tool to help you with the self-assessment process. Simply follow the FAR and Above Phase 1/CMMC Level 1 requirements.

If the self-assessment tool is useful to you, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the CMMC Information Institute.

If your organization wants a more structured approach than our self-assessment tool, consider using the platform or the FutureFeed LevelOne tool. FutureFeed sponsors the CMMC Information Institute.
