Due to community feedback relating to system challenges impacting NCCS implementation, DCSA has made the decision to sunset the current NCCS application effective 1 October 2021, and will be coordinating with OUSD A&S and OUSD I&S to update the FAR. Over the next few months DCSA will be developing NCCS 2.0 which has a tentative release date of Q2 FY22.
During this time DCSA will be developing new training products to aid the community with implementation including the following:
We will also be setting up a phased implementation schedule to ensure we can dedicate time to each organization for a smooth transition into NCCS 2.0.
PLEASE NOTE: During the development period of NCCS 2.0, DCSA will continue to accept PDF DD Form 254s, in lieu of system automated processing.
Guidance for Submitting PDF DD Form 254s during Transition:
During the system transition, please email DD Form 254s to your respective Cognizant Security Office (CSO) located in Block 8, Part C, and copy to the NCCS mailbox.
CSO email addresses can be found: https://www.dcsa.mil/mc/ctp/locations/

To prepare for NCCS 2.0 Implementation please see below:
AGENCY POCs NEEDED! As we plan for NCCS 2.0 implementation, we need to identify agency/organization points of contact. Please submit points of contact by emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
TESTERS NEEDED! As new capabilities are developed and released, there is always room for new or returning testers. To volunteer for testing email us at: email@example.com
The National Industrial Security Program (NISP) Contracts Classification System (NCCS) is the Enterprise Federal information system application supporting DoD, the other Federal Agencies in the NISP and cleared contractor companies by facilitating the processing and distribution of contract security classification specifications for contracts requiring access to classified information.
NCCS established a centralized repository for the 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.
