Reason for Action

Material Breach & Enforcement

In June, 2022 the Department of Defense (DoD) release a memorandum to affirm DoD contractors responsibilities and DoD contracting officers obligation to enforce these requirements for prime contractors, tier suppliers and subcontractors, and certain cloud services. 

    • DFARS 252.204-7012 requires a contractor to implement, at minimum, the NIST SP 800-171 security requirements.
    • Contractors must implement all of the NIST SP 800-171 requirements and have a plan of action and milestones for each requirement not yet implemented. 
    • Failure to have or to make progress on a plan to implement NIST SP 800-171 requirements may be considered a material breach of contract requirements.  
    • Remedies for such a breach may include: withholding progress payments; foregoing remaining contract options; and potentially terminating the contract in part or in whole.  
    • In accordance with DFARS 204.7303(b)(2) the Contracting Officer must verify, prior to award of a new contract, option exercise, contract extension or new procurement modification, task order, or delivery order.

    • The contractor must have the summary level score of a current NIST SP 800-171 DoD Assessment for that system posted in SPRS.
    • This requirement applies even if the new award does not include DFARS clause 252.204-7020.

CUI Discovery

The cornerstone for all requirements! What is CUI? What are your CUI security requirements? Where does CUI flow within your operations? Who creates CUI? Where does CUI flow outside your company?

DoD policy requires contractors follow CUI laws, regulations, and government-wide policies. DoD also has unique requirements that must be applied to all CUI and specific requirements for certain categories of CUI. Your company is responsible for safeguarding and marking all CUI created and developed during the contract performance. GET ANSWERS.

Risk & Security Assessments

These two requirements provide the foundation for your System Security Plan. Remember, although NIST guidance says they may be informal, but DFARS and CMMC require EVIDENCE for each control/practice every each assessment objective. Understand the requirements and controls with CERTAINTY. Document the risks related to the applicable CUI Basic & Specified Requirements. Document the security control assessment to determine your current conformity, gaps, and non-conformities for each control/ practice and each assessment objective. RM.L2-3.11/CA.L2-3.12

Plan of Action & Milestones

Turn your risks, non-conformities  and gaps into tasks on your plan of action and milestones (POA&M), which is your “To do” list managed across each impacted area in the company. The POA&M is the single point of failure for most companies.  Our CMMC ePU documentation is integrated into a special version of FutureFeed, which allows you to manage each task, progress, and deliverable across all your stakeholders.  From requirements to tasks,  tasks to people, people to activities, activities to deliverables, deliverables to budgets. CA.L2-3.12.2

System Security Plan

The most important document as evidence you will produce on your path to compliance. NIST calls for “overwhelming evidence” of compliance and DoD and CMMC assessors enforce this expectation with rigor. DoD cites two major sources for failure… Failure to understand the requirements and failure to provide satisfactory evidence of compliance.

Do not make the mistake of investing 12-24 months of effort and thousands of dollars to “think” you’re right and place 30% or more of your revenue at risk. CA.L2-3.1.3

CMMC @ReganEdens CMMC Expert Dtcglobal.usWARNING- DoD is conducting 5 Day Notice Audits


  • Have you conducted your REQUIRED Basic Self-Assessment?
  • Have you reported your SPRS Score?
  • Do you have substantial evidence to support your score?

DFARS 7020 says, ” Requirement. In order to be considered for award, if the Offeror is required to implement NIST SP 800-171, the Offeror shall have a current assessment (i.e., not more than 3 years old unless a lesser time is specified in the solicitation) for each covered contractor information system that is relevant to the offer, contract, task order, or delivery order.

  • Many large prime contractors are enforcing minimum SPRS scores.
  • DoD analysis from the SPRS audits stated SIGNIFICANT finding based on a failure to understand requirements and lack of sufficient evidence.
