NIST 800-171 & SPRS Compliance

Federal Contractors Must Verify NIST 800-171 Compliance in SPRS

NIST SP 800-171 SPRS compliance

NIST 800-171 Compliance, SPRS Documentation, and Audit Preparation Support for DoD and other Federal Contractors and Subcontractors

DoD, GSA, DHS, NIH, GWAC, and more federal contracts now require contractor and subcontractor NIST SP 800-171 compliance, verified through the SPRS system. Now is the time to ensure your compliance and prepare for a successful NIST 800-171 audit by ensuring you have the right cyber security and risk management processes in place.

NIST SP 800-171 now requires U.S. federal prime contractors and subcontractors who handle controlled unclassified information (CUI) to demonstrate that they understand the federal government’s cyber security requirements, are working towards compliance, and can provide a timeline for achieving compliance. Beyond the previously-required self-certification of compliance, NIST 800-171 now requires increasing numbers of contractors and subcontractors to verify, document, and upload compliance proof to the Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) in order to be eligible for federal contracts. Randomly-selected organizations will be subject to remote and/or in-person audits to verify their cyber security and risk management system compliance.

SPECTRUM Cyber Compliance (SCC) streamlines NIST 800-171 cybersecurity and risk management compliance assessments, corrective risk management plan design and implementation, and documentation preparation into a simple and customized solution for your organization. SCC can also integrate other desired cyber security compliances, such as Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification 2.0 (CMMC 2.0), other FAR and DFAR requirements, ISO certifications, or other cybersecurity or risk management systems into a single compliance system for your organization.

Contact SPECTRUM Cyber Compliance today to learn more about how your organization can quickly and comprehensively achieve NIST SP 800-171 compliance.
