Join us October 12th, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern to learn the importance of contractor compliance with increasing cybersecurity mandates. 

 

Federal agencies (including DoD, Homeland Security, NASA, Department of Energy) are requiring industry suppliers to be in compliance with systems security mandates.  Among vendors that are currently in compliance, there are increased sales opportunities becoming available.

 

Compliance timelines are being established for all agencies. These actions are in direct support of (new) mandates to fortify national security measures. 

 

It is estimated that by 2025, DoD will only allow bidding and contract awards to companies that meet the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) levels 1-5 as determined by an outside auditor.

Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) is a governmentwide priority and it is critical to delivering secure, reliable solutions for our customers. This month, we will cover how  the full implementation of Section 889 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and the increasing reliance on a global supply chain with foreign owned or controlled equipment and services, delivering secure solutions presents an opportunity for the federal acquisition workforce. Join us and learn about how these factors present a threat to government acquisitions and the federal supply chain and how you can use SCRM methodologies to defend against it. 

 

About Spotlight Webinars:

The government-wide Professional Services Category (PSC) will be shining a “spotlight” on several hot topics in the coming months through a series of interactive webinars. The “Spotlight” webinars are designed to share sound acquisition practices, from requirements development and market research to service delivery and contract closeout, and improve acquisition through inter-agency collaboration. 

These webinars and shared resources support the governmentwide category management initiatives to make smarter and more efficient buying decisions. All webinars are open to the federal acquisition workforce and most offer Certified Learning Points. In addition, webinars are recorded and posted on the Acquisition Gateway.

Remember, you can sign up for OASIS DPA training at any time through DAU’s Virtual Campus by searching FAC 152.

 

Delegation of Procurement (DPA) training gives Contracting Officers access to the OASIS Unrestricted and OASIS Small Business contract vehicles and teaches best practices for task order issuance. A single

DPA will be issued for both OASIS and OASIS SB. Warranted contracting officers (a contracting officer appointed pursuant to FAR 1.603) can request a DPA, which allows direct access to our Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs). The DPA clearly delineates the roles and responsibilities between the GSA contracting officer and the ordering contracting officer and complies with the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) executive agent designation to GSA.

 

DPA requestors must have a .gov or .mil email address. Requestors who do not have a .gov or .mil email address must submit a copy of their warrant as a federal contracting officer to oasisdpa@gsa.gov for consideration.
