It’s well-known that the two spreadsheets within eMASS for the Assessment & Authorization (AA) process require a tremendous amount of data to be inputted, with some of the information being similar on both. With that said, can they be combined to speed up the process?

The short answer is NO. Per DCSA, the information entered into the Control Information and Test Results templates are NOT the same. Remember, the export template spreadsheets were specifically customized by DISA to support the eMASS RMF workflow process. More specifically, the export templates are DIFFERENT indeed - differences that are critical to the overall NIST RMF A&A process
