Edwards & the CMMC Ecosystem
Edwards will play a role in nearly every aspect of the CMMC ecosystem. Currently, Edwards supports Organizations Seeking Certification (OSC) as a Registered Provider Organization (RPO) and Certified Third Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO), providing CMMC-AB approved assessments, consulting, and audit preparation through our proprietary Quick Look Assessments. We are also Licensed Training Provider (LTP) and Licensed Partner Publisher (LPP), developing training and providing CMMC-AB certified classes to organizations and individuals planning to take CMMC-AB certification exams or utilize other LPP curriculum.

CMMC is already starting to appear in upcoming statements of work and while CMMC will only apply to new contracts, it is critical to prepare for compliance now. High audit demand means you must be prepared to pass the first time or risk being waitlisted – potentially foregoing large DoD contract opportunities. CMMC compliance will be a go-no-go decision gate at the time of the contract award.
