Certification and Accreditation

Services: Certification Accreditation
SNS One has a proven track record of assisting federal agencies with all phases of their certification and accreditation (C&A) planning and implementation to comply with all government regulations and guidance. SNS One specializes in the following regulatory requirements including Appendix III of OMB A-130, National Institute of Standards and Technology Certification and Accreditation Process guidelines (NIST 800 series), DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP), NSA Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (NIACAP) and the DoD Intelligence Information System Security (DoDIIS) Certification and Accreditation Process. Our employees are versed in the supplementary directives and manuals that accompany the successful implementation of these requirements.

We assist Information Assurance Managers (IAM) with initial C&A program planning; System and Application Owners with C&A life cycle implementation, and Auditors with compliance assessment.

Specifically, our C&A services include the following:
  • Life Cycle Certification Support: We provide system and application developers and owners with tailored, full-service support during all phases of C&A: Phase 1 (Definition), Phase 2 (Verification), Phase 3 (Validation), and Phase 4 (Post-Accreditation).
  • Certification Audit Support: Our Team supports Inspector Generals (IG), Certification Authorities (CA) and Designated Approving Authorities (DAA) perform certification assessments of agency systems, application and operations in accordance with NIACAP, DIACAP, DoDIIS and OMB A-130.
