The NIST SP 800-171 Implementation Kit will be a great timesaver that allows you to zoom right past many administrative preparations and go directly into the technical work. The documents in the kit now comply with the December 2016 Revision 1 of NIST SP-800-171.
The kit contains:
A Word document that provides a template for your responses to all of the requirements of the NIST SP 800-171. (The blue text was added for illustration of the use of the template.)
These are a few sample slides from the PowerPoint Presentation that explains DFARS 252.204-7012 and NIST SP 800-171. It is suitable for providing understanding and prompting fruitful discussion within your organization leadership. Because it is in the Powerpoint format, it is easily customized to meet the needs in your organization.
The NIST SP 800-171 Implementation Kit includes copies of NIST SP 800-171 and the DFARS text.
For every requirement in NIST SP 800-171, the source documentation has been collected into a single document. These documents pull together, in one place, the documentation from which the requirement was pulled. This allows understanding of the Government's intent and facilitates implementation. There are 86 different help documents included in the Implementation Kit. (In a few cases, NIST SP 800-171, directs the user to a single guidance document for more than one relatedrequirement.)
In the kit is an Excel spreadsheet that allows you to track implementation progress. Each of the guidance documents is hot-linked from this spreadsheet. This spreadsheet can also be used to generate the list of requirements that have not yet been implemented, that must be sent to the DOD CIO within 30 days of an award.
This kit has multiple tools to accelerate NIST SP 800-171 implementation. For only $39.99, this kit will pay for itself with just an hour or 2 of time saved.
