As an Accredited Standards Developer (ASD) of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), NCMA will hold a public meeting of the Standards Consensus Body (SCB) on November 18, 2021, from 5 – 7pm Eastern.
All interested parties (members and nonmembers) are invited to attend this online event. To attend the meeting, please RSVP.
The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the new work of reaffirming the Contract Management Standard™ (CMS™) as American National Standard (ANS) ANSI/NCMA ASD 1-2019 and to hold a formal vote to accept, reject, or modify the new work. Download a free copy of the CMS™ at ncmahq.org/cms.
ANSI’s third-party accreditation provides additional confidence and trust in the CMS™ and its ability to create efficiency and stability to contract management. To become an approved ANS, the CMS™ endured rigorous processes for:
1. A consensus-based standard;
2. Public review and comment on draft standards;
3. Response to comments;
4. Incorporation of approved changes; and
5. Right to appeal.
The same processes will be used in the reaffirmation process. For additional information, please contact NCMA at Standards@ncmahq.org.
