What is CMMC?

Learn more about CMMC 2.0 and the DoD’s compliance and verification framework.
  • CMMC Maturity Model streamlined from 5 to 3 levels.
  • CMMC 2.0 eliminates all CMMC unique practices and processes; Level 2 will be aligned with NIST 800-171 and Level 3 will use a subset of NIST 800-172.
  • Limited use of POAMs.
  • Third-Party Assessments for prioritized acquisitions, critical to national security.
  • Self-Assessments for non-prioritized acquisitions, not critical to national security.

The Interim Rule is still in effect! NIST 800-171 Self-Assessment, SSP, POAM, and SPRS Score still stand. However, the timeline for contracts to include the CMMC level may possibly change from 2025 to 2023.
