If you are a Defense contractor you will be required to have a CMMC assessment at one of the five levels specified by your Government contracting officer. . This assessment will measure your company's ability to safeguard certain unclassified information like data related to your contract. CW can help you identify this data and help you get in compliance with the requirements.
The length of time will vary according the CMMC level you need to be assessed at and the size and makeup of your company. Generally if you are prepared in advance and you are at Level 1, your assessment could take 1 day to less than a week. Click here to see the graphic provided by the CMMC-AB.
At CW we are here to help you first and foremost. We offer an initial free consultation to introduce you to the CMMC landscape and offer you guidance on who to select for various parts of the process. Remember that if a company assists you in preparing, they cannot be the same company that does your assessment. We can provide all these guidelines to you for free and we do not put any pressure on which companies you choose to help you. Also you should know that the CMMC Accreditation Board is also there to provide guidance and direct you to an appropriate service provider.
At level 1 you will be assessed for having certain practices in place but the maturity of your processes will not be measured. At Level 1 only 17 practice areas will be assessed.
At Level 3 and above the maturity of your processes will be measured in addition to having implemented the required practices. This means you must implement your processes and adhere to those corporate policies you put in place for at least 3 months. Your assessor will be looking to see 3 months of evidence at a minimum (6 months for Level 5).
You must prepare for your assessment well in advance. Contact us for more information.
