We’re proud to announce that Maryland-based DoD Contractors who use SysArc® DFARS/NIST 800-171 Compliance Solutions may qualify for financial assistance through The Maryland Defense Cybersecurity Assistance Program (DCAP).
About the Program:
With Maryland Department of Defense Contractors accounting for more than $57 billion in economic activity, the DCAP created the program to assist DoD Contractors in complying with Federal regulations so they can continue to provide their services to the Federal Government.
More specifically, this program provides financial assistance to DoD Contractors needing to comply with The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) and meet the requirements defined in NIST SP 800-171.
The program is funded by the Department of Defense’s Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) through the Maryland Department of Commerce and is being coordinated by the Maryland MEP.
In order to qualify for the program, the Defense Contractor must have a physical location in Maryland, and must have 10% or more of its business related to the Department of Defense or have a contract/procurement request for compliance.
The DCAP has made the following grants available:
- $2,500 for Gap Analysis: Funding is available to reimburse $2,500 of the cost for a SysArc® NIST SP 800-171 Gap Analysis.
- $5,000 for Remediation: Funding is available to reimburse $5,000 of the cost for SysArc® NIST 800-171 Remediation Services.
- $3,000 for Tools, Hardware and Software: Funding is available to reimburse $3,000 of the cost of tools, hardware, and software required during the remediation phase.
