DoD: No Contract Requirement Before Completion of CMMC 2.0 Rulemaking Process

It is highly recommended that Industry review the Securing the Defense Industrial Base CMMC 2.0 website.

To safeguard sensitive national security information, the Department of Defense (DoD) launched CMMC 2.0, a comprehensive framework to protect the defense industrial base from increasingly frequent and complex cyberattacks. With its streamlined requirements, CMMC 2.0:

  • Cuts red tape for small and medium sized businesses
  • Sets priorities for protecting DoD information
  • Reinforces cooperation between the DoD and industry in addressing evolving cyber threats

DoD does not intend to approve inclusion of a Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) requirement in any contract prior to completion of the CMMC 2.0 rulemaking process, which can take 9 to 24 months.

CMMC 2.0 will become a requirement once rulemaking is completed. It is highly recommended that Industry review the Securing the Defense Industrial Base CMMC 2.0 website.
