NeoSystems Debuts Compliance Tech for Government Contractors

The new offering, NeoSMRT 2.0, is designed to help suppliers to public agencies better secure their data and meet cybersecurity standards. The move comes amid other digital changes to government supply chains.

Virginia-based NeoSystems, a managed services provider for the government contracting market, has launched a tool designed to help suppliers better track and boost cybersecurity compliance.

More specifically, the new NeoSMRT 2.0 will “help government contractors track, educate and support the path to CMMC compliance,” according to a statement.

CMMC stands for Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, a standard designed to gauge how well an organization can secure vulnerable data.

The tool addresses what the company called “compliance gaps” among SMB suppliers that sell to federal, state and local governments, according to the statement. NeoSMRT 2.0 allows suppliers to track CMMC progress while helping other supply chain participants achieve their own certifications.

The tool includes a dashboard that contractors can use for real-time supplier readiness status, supplier engagement analysis, access to CMMC training and education, and other tasks. Use of the platform is free for government contractors, though additional services are not.

“Primes are selecting subcontractors today for current and future contracts based upon their compliance status right now,” said Brian Giblin, director of CMMC readiness for NeoSystems, in that statement. “Not only do primes need to make sure they are ready to be CMMC certified but with large supply chain networks the task can easily become daunting. NeoSystems is helping to add process and manageability to this initiative so that contractors do not lose business as a result of the complexity of program compliance.”

This product launch comes amid other digitally focused changes in government contracting — which, like the larger worlds of B2B and government technology, is moving away from analog systems. A recent example comes from newly rebranded Pavilion, which in January debuted an online product meant to make it easier for suppliers to meet the procurement rules of state and local governments.
