Instructions to CCA Confirmation Reviewer:
Clinger-Cohen Act compliance must be confirmed prior to contract
award and milestone decisions for all mission critical and mission essential
Information Technology (IT) systems (see attachment 1). Confirmation of
CCA compliance consists of evaluating eleven (11) key items (see attachment
2). You have been identified as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) on at least
one of those 11 items.
Attachment 3 is
Program Manager's CCA Compliance Table and Supporting Documentation for the
Joint Warning and Reporting Network (JWARN) Program
Request you review the supporting documentation for CCA Table
Item(s) 1 through 7 and 10, for sufficiency in relation to the spirit and
intent of CCA and provide a written assessment of your findings.
To assist in developing your assessment, the checklist/table
provided in attachment 4 is provided. Request you prepare a CCA item
level assessment for your assigned items. To do that, fill in the checklist
table for the item(s) you are reviewing. You should either rate the CCA item as
"compliant", "marginal" or "noncompliant". Definitions of those rating criteria
are provided with the table. In addition, request you prepare one short
paragraph for each CCA item(s) you are requested to review to summarize the
results of your assessment. The narrative summary may be included in the table
as well. Your input will be used to prepare the final CCA assessment for the
program, which will address all 11 items.
A sample item level assessment is provided in attachment 5
to help you understand the level of detail required, and the format for your
response. Note that the sample provided has inputs for all items. This is done
for completeness - item level assessments will address only select items. Only
the final CCA assessment will address all items.
Your input is due back to the sender of this email by COB 1
Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Questions may be
directed to your CCA Coordinator, identified below.
