DFARS 252.204-7019: Notice of NIST SP 800-171 DoD Assessment Requirements

This new DFARS clause notifies the contractor that they are required to maintain a record within the Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS). Each contractor will be required to maintain a current DoD Assessment within the system. This means that each contractor will need to have a Low, Medium, or High assessment completed at least every three years and ensure that it is properly reported within SPRS.

Click here to access the SPRS. If you do not have an account with SPRS, you will need to request access through the Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment (PIEE). Click here to access the PIEE. You will need a certificate to register /authenticate to PIEE / SPRS.
