The DSS NISP Authorization Office (NAO) has postponed the eMASS transition until May 6, 2019. Cleared industry partners should continue to work with their ISSPs and Team Leads to complete the required eMASS training and request a NISP eMASS account to ensure readiness for the transition. Job aids are posted on the NISP eMASS Information and Resource Center.
With the postponement of the eMASS transition, the DSS Assessment and Authorization Process Manual (DAAPM) Version 2.0 will be delayed. The revised release date is April 8, 2019, with an effective date of May 6, 2019.
Industry partners should continue to submit all System Security Plans (SSP) and supporting artifacts via the ODAA Business Management System (OBMS).
