Idaho’s PTAC has been made aware of a fast-approaching deadline for prime and sub-contractors working with the Department of Defense (DoD). All contractors must complete and submit a NIST SP 800-171 cyber self-assessment to the DoD Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) through their approved vendor, Project Spectrum, in compliance with CMMC requirements.
The deadline for this required self-assessment is Monday, November 30, 2020. Those who do not complete and submit this initial self-assessment are at risk of losing their contracts with the DoD.
All American businesses are encouraged to use the free Cyber Readiness Check tool provided through ProjectSpectrum.io to complete their self-assessment.
There are two necessary parts to complete and submit this requirement. Please use the following instructions as a guide:
