NISPOM Codifying, Guidance, Cleared Defense Contractors, and all those CFRs
The latest industry buzz is the “release of the new National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM)”. I’m putting air quotes in there, because an actual NISPOM has not been rewritten or re-released. There is no re-release of NISPOM, only a reorganization of the CFRs that duplicate National Industrial Security Program requirements. If you are expecting the release of a “new NISPOM”, such as a Change 3 or a total re-write, that has not occurred.
