“I am so pleased to announce that Snap Tech IT has been approved by the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB) as a CMMC Registered Provider Organization as an RPO!” says Karl Bickmore, CEO Snap Tech IT
In the CMMC ecosystems, RPOs provide advice, consulting, and recommendations to Federal Government subcontractors preparing for certification. RPOs are the implementers and consultants that help organizations prepare for certification but do not conduct certified assessments.
An approved CMMC RPO, we must maintain a focused proficiency with the CMMC standard and employ CMMC certified Registered Practitioners (RP) that have expertise in the CMMC framework and cybersecurity best practices. We have a history of providing Federal Government subcontractors with sound guidance in paving the way to certification, and now, we’re being recognized as a go-to resource by the CMMC-AB Marketplace, a listing of approved RPOs for CMMC resources.
Benefits of Working With An RPO
Partnering with a CMMC-AB RPO is a real win for Federal Government organizations because it eliminates the need to start from scratch when attempting to harden your infrastructure for CMMC certification. You can be confident that you’re aligning with an MSP that:
- Is authorized to represent themselves as familiar with the constructs of the CMMC standard
- Has agreed to the CMMC-AB Code of Professional Conduct
- Received CMMC-AB provided training
- Has passed a commercial background check
- Can participate as an assessment team member during the Provisional period

The Department is committed to working with the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) sector to enhance the protection of controlled unclassified information (CUI) within the supply chain.
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework takes various cybersecurity standards and best practices and maps these controls and processes across several maturity levels that range from basic cyber hygiene to advanced.
For a given CMMC level, the associated practices and processes, when implemented, will reduce risk against a specific set of cyber threats. The CMMC effort builds upon the existing regulation (DFARS 252.204-7012) by adding a verification component for cybersecurity requirements.
