DSS is working with the Services separately since they are larger than the other agencies. As for industry, DSS would like you to review these phase dates, determine who your Contractor Account Managers (CAMs) (primary and alternate) will be, complete the CAM Appointment Letter and notify DSS at DSS.NCCS@mail.mil with this information to set up your company group (subgroups) and provide registration information.
Government Account Managers (GAMs) will use the GAM Appointment Letter and notify DSS at DSS.NCCS@mail.mil with their agency group structure (subgroups).
A USD(I) memo was signed on February 8, 2018 which mandates NCCS use for DoD Components by Sept 14, 2018. DSS will be working with the DoD Components to schedule an implementation strategy.
Below are some upcoming requirements to look forward to:
NCCS tested and deployed v5.10.1 in June 2017. This version is scheduled for a June deployment. This version allows industry to view their prime DD Form 254s and create a subcontract/tier DD Form 254 from the prime; adds a NCCS Library and Location Code lookup; updates the dashboard view when the user logs in; automates the National Interest Determination workflow process (government process); encrypts the data at rest. CDSE also has developed a Job Aid and also can be found in the FSO Toolkit.
Are you interested in testing in the NCCS test sites? Follow these simple steps: Review the nine steps for machine setup to ensure you are ready to register using your computer here. You may wish to discuss the nine steps with your IT team to confirm your computer is ready to test and to ensure the attached DoD certificates are installed on your computer.
As DSS rolls out NCCS in a phased implementation throughout the NISP community, the DLA/DISA Help Desk will provide Tier I-level and Tier 2-level user support for NCCS as below:
