Microsoft is limiting GCC high to companies with current gov contracts requiring protecting regulated data, but DOD is putting CMMC requirements in RFIs now.

 

IS MS legal going to open GCC high to companies bidding on DoD contracts?

@Landry_secure The requirements for Category 3 eligibility has been a barrier to entry.  Fortunately, there is a new process targeted to go live next month (September 2020) that should improve the experience in alignment with Government requirements for the supply chain. We will be able to share more details once it goes live.
