CMMC depends upon Authorized C3PAOs. DCMA’s DIBCAC team plays a crucial role in the C3PAO authorization process. However, the DIBCAC teams’ calendars were already full prior to CMMC. In this article, co-authored with Kyle Lai, Carter Schoenberg, Tony Buenger, and Derek White, we discuss whether the current system is likely to clear the CMMC C3PAO backlog in a timely manner and explore a few alternatives.
A second C3PAO has met the Authorization requirements set forth by DoD and the CMMC-AB. This is a significant step in building out the CMMC Ecosystem!
The CMMC-AB announced the authorization of the first C3PAO.
Two C3PAO-focused events were held this past week: a C3PAO Roundtable, and a session on ISO 17020 accreditation requirements. More details, and a link to the ISO 17020 recording are available in the article.
Please join Victoria Delaney, M. Tanner Glover, and Tara Lemieux on Friday May 21, 2021 at 11:00 AM as they discuss a variety of topics including: the differences between ISO 17020 and 17021, what C3PAOs can expect during an ISO audit, how long an audit typically takes, and “typical” assessment costs.
