The deadline to complete the Annual NISP Cost Collection Survey has been extended through COB Feb. 5, 2016. (more)
As the Executive Agency for the National Industrial Security Program (NISP) under Executive Order 12829, the Department of Defense is required to provide the Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) with an estimated annual cost to Industry of complying with NISP security requirements. DSS determines the costs by surveying contractors who possess classified information at their cleared facility. Results are forwarded to ISOO and incorporated in an annual report to the President.
To meet this requirement, DSS conducts a stratified, random sample survey of contractor facilities using a web-based survey and Office of Management and Budget (OMB)-approved survey methodology. Since the sample of cleared facility participants is randomly selected, not all facilities will receive the survey. The survey was fielded on January 15, 2016 and remain open through COB February 5, 2016. Participation is anonymous. Verification of the legitimacy of the Survey URL can be obtained through your Cognizant Security Office. If you have any questions, please direct them to our mailbox: PSIProgram@dss.mil.
We appreciate your cooperation and submission of the cost information by February 5, 2016.
