The National Industrial Security Program (NISP) Contract Classification System (NCCS) is the enterprise Federal information system application supporting DoD, the other Federal Agencies and cleared industry in the NISP by facilitating the processing and distribution of contract security classification specifications for contracts requiring access to classified information. NCCS is one of 14 e-Business suites within the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment’s Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment (PIEE). PIEE is a secure web-based system for electronic invoicing, receipt, and acceptance. NCCS establishes a centralized repository and collection of classified contract security requirements and supporting data while automating the DD Form 254 (DoD Contract Security Classification Specification) processes and workflows.
Benefits of NCCS
The requirement to use NCCS is rooted in FAR case 15-002 (FAR Section 4.402) and that update is effective August 3, 2020. OUSD (I&S) published guidance on FAR implementation for NCCS on September 2, 2020. Your organizations’ contracting, requirements/program and security offices should be included in your NCCS implementation planning. In preparing for the follow-on actions that will ensue, there are three recommendations for Industry planning:
The DLA/DISA Help Desk will provide Tier I-level and Tier 2-level user support for NCCS as below:
Tier 1 – e.g. Password resets, account terminations, and frequently asked questions
Tier 2 – e.g. Functionality and workflow system navigation issues
CONUS ONLY: 1-866-618-5988
To help facilitate processing of your request please include in the body of the email your name, email address,contact number, and a brief summary of issue
If your account is locked, please contact your Government Account Manager (GAM) – agencies or Contractor Account Manager (CAM) - industry. There is a link “Who's my Organization's GAM?” under the User ID Login button.
Government Administrators (GAMs) will use the GAM Appointment Letter and notify the DLA/DISA Help Desk with this information so an agency group can be created.
If Industry Partners desire to use NCCS regardless if directed by contract or not then they can start to determine who their Contractor Account Managers (CAMs) (primary and alternate) will be, complete the CAM Appointment Letter and notify the DLA/DISA Help Desk with this information so your company group can be created.
NOTE: Once the initial CAM/GAM has been registered and has an account then all further administrative and user needs for NCCS role activations will be managed by that person.
