Earlier this week the CMMC Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB) released heavily anticipated information regarding the application process for hopeful Certified Third-Party Assessor Organizations (C3PAOs). These new details outline the requirements necessary for certification as well as the benefits of receiving such. A successful application process will allow C3PAO’s to contract with organizations seeking certifications, schedule assessments, hire and train certify assessors, and manage assessments.
At this time, DoD contractors should remain weary of companies with false CMMC-AB ties and remain vigilant. As a reminder, all DoD suppliers will need CMMC certification by 2025. We encourage you to be proactive and advocate for your business’s upcoming needs.
