How much is the CMMC Accreditation Body (“CMMC-AB”) charging to conduct an assessment?
The CMMC-AB is not conducting the assessments and is not setting minimum or maximum rates for an assessment. All CMMC-AB Certified Assessors must undergo specialized training created and delivered by organizations independent from the CMMC-AB, and must pass rigorous certification examinations. Assessors are hired by Certified 3rd Party Assessment Organizations (“C3PAOs”) to perform the assessments. The CMMC-AB has already approved over 40 C3PAO organizations, and organizations seeking certification (“OSCs” or, simply, your organization) can seek competitive bids from multiple OSCs in an effort to find the best fit for your particular needs (e.g., weighing delivery time, cost, and other factors relevant to your unique situation).
