House Small Business oversight subcommittee is working to get an amendment into the fiscal year 2022 defense authorization bill to direct the Pentagon to assess the small business impacts of CMMC.
The amendment addresses the costs small businesses will face to reach compliance with CMMC.
Pentagon spokeswoman Jessica Maxwell says they'll "look for avenues in which to reduce the costs to small businesses while keeping the integrity of the cybersecurity requirements."
