Clarification/Update - Interact Question #3 - Cyber Security Risk Management Plan

Thank you all for your valuable input and suggestions. In an effort to clear the confusion between the Alliant team’s question and a more government wide effort that is currently being socialized, please consider the proposed Alliant 2 Cyber Risk Management Plan (CRMP) is separate from, but complementary to, the implementation of Executive Order 13636.  The CRMP requirement is intended to be a top level management plan which provides information to the government sufficient to demonstrate an offeror’s understanding of and ability to provide assured solutions under Alliant 2 contract and execute under the constraints of NIST 800-53 as supported by FIPS 200.  The CRMP is a management plan, not a technical document and it is understood that specific technical requirements will be addressed at the individual task order level.
