Certified Assessor (CA) applicants who meet the qualifications below and wish to participate must opt-in
to the Provisional Program. Respondents will be divided into two pools.
Selection from the two pools will occur using a combination of random selection (83%) and best qualified analysis (17%). Analysis of “best qualified” will be based on pre-requisites, domain expertise, AB contribution, and industry experience.
Thirty (30) assessor candidates that have provided a C3PAO affiliation will form the first pool. Independent assessor candidates will form a second pool (30).
In the case where more than sixty assessor applicants opt-in, a random lottery will be used to select provisional candidates.
An additional twelve candidates will be selected by the Accreditation Body.
Create a strong and diverse pool of Provisional Assessors to provide the CMMC-AB, the subjects of the pilots and pathfinders and DoD valuable feedback about their experience with the assessment process.
