Do you contract with the Department of Defense?

Macomb County Chamber of Commerce is proud to be part of a local effort to provide you with information you need to know so that you won't be barred from contracting with the DoD next year.

DFARS regulations require that all Department of Defense (DoD) suppliers implement NIST Special Publication 800-171 controls by December 31, 2017. The Chamber, Macomb Community College, MEDC, Macomb County, Michigan Manufacturers Technology Center and PTAC are hosting a FREE event which will feature guest speakers who will explain the requirements, the consequences of not complying, and the steps necessary to determine and achieve compliance.

October 18
7:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Wayne State University Advanced Technology Education Center
14601 E. 12 Mile Rd.
Warren, Mich.

If your organization hasn't already started, further delays will impact your ability to think carefully about what you need and how to do it.
