The National Industrial Security Program (NISP) Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Service (eMASS) is scheduled to be operational on May 6, 2019. Industry partners should continue to use the ODAA Business Management System (OBMS) until then. Work with your local Information Systems Security Professional and/or ISSP Team Lead to complete the required training to ensure readiness for the transition.
