NISP eMASS DAAPM DCSA | Receiving Authorization for a Common Control Provider (CCP) Plan

Per DCSA, organizations must submit a CCP plan (CAGE Code-CCP-System Name) within eMASS.  A CCP plan will thus enable an organization to document their common controls, which will ensure consistency and streamline assessment and authorization processes.  The CCP package will be used to identify the common controls and all the associated procedures and artifacts, along with specifying if the common controls provide the required protection fully or in hybrid fashion.  

Please note that the requirements for the CCP plan are the same as other system security plans. 

Organizations will be required to address System Details, Control Information (Implementation Plan, System Level Continuous Monitoring (SLCM)), Test Results (all CCIs/Assessment Procedures), and upload all associated artifacts.  Security controls that will not be addressed in the CCP plan will be marked as Not Applicable.  Additionally, organizations must include a digitally signed document detailing the CAGE Codes and locations of the facilities authorized to inherit from the CCP.  This document will be used as a supporting artifact and will be uploaded into the Artifacts tab.

Once the CCP plan is developed, the organization will submit the package and request authorization to allow systems to inherit the common controls.
