NISP Contracts Classification System (NCCS)

What is NCCS?

The National Industrial Security Program (NISP) Contracts Classification System (NCCS) is the enterprise federal information system supporting Department of Defense, other Federal Agencies under NISP agreement, and cleared Industry. NCCS is the one-stop-shop for processing and distribution of contract security classification specifications for contracts requiring access to classified information. NCCS is designed to deliver 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 across the enterprise.

DCSA assumed operational control and development responsibility for NCCS from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) on October 1, 2021. NCCS was soft launched on June 6, 2022.
