The Defense Department on Thursday disclosed the first seven contracts that are likely to be the initial test cases for the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program, DoD’s new approach to shoring up its suppliers’ IT security.
The department stopped short of a full commitment to subject the forthcoming Navy, Air Force and Missile Defense Agency procurements to CMMC’s requirements.
In a statement, DoD said only that they are “candidates” under consideration to serve as pathfinders.
The projects, as described by the Pentagon, are:
- Integrated Common Processor
- F/A-18E/F Full Mod of the SBAR and Shut off Valve
- Yard services for the Arleigh Burke Class destroyer
- Mobility Air Force Tactical Data Links
- Consolidated Broadband Global Area Network Follow-On
- Azure Cloud Solution
Missile Defense Agency
- Technical Advisory and Assistance Contract
The department did not immediately provide further details on the procurements beyond the descriptions above, but said each of the contracts are expected to be awarded in fiscal 2021.
