Starting November 30,2020, the DFARS Interim Rule (DFARS Case 2029-DO41) requires ALL contractors and subcontractors to submit the score of a Basic NIST 800-171 DoD Assessment (Self-Assessment), using the NIST 800-171 DoD Assessment Methodology, in the Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) prior to any contract award. CMMC Academy’s NIST 800-171 Assessment Tool is based on the NIST 800-171 DoD Assessment Methodology Version 1.2.1 and was specifically developed to help DoD suppliers meet this requirement.
Before using this tool make sure that you have a current System Security Plan (SSP) that describes system boundaries, system environments of operation, how security requirements are implemented, and the relationships with or connections to other systems.
