Certified Product Sales & Support

CPSS is an alternative program to the traditional procurement procedures for the development of Information Assurance (IA) equipment and encourages the availability of IA products.

Overview

The Certified Product Sales and Support (CPSS) Program is an alternative to the traditional procurement procedures for the development of Information Assurance (IA) equipment. The program encourages the availability of IA products with relatively limited impact on the National Security Agency’s (NSA) IA resources. A CPSS agreement is entered into between the NSA and a vendor when:

  • An IA vendor, under contract to the NSA for the production of IA equipment, wants to produce more equipment than the quantity specified in the original contract for distribution to United States Government departments, agencies, and other qualified purchasers; or
  • An IA vendor of a certified product desires to contract with a qualified company, other than the manufacturer, to market, install, and maintain an IA product that has already received U.S. Government approval; or
  • NSA authorizes an IA vendor of a certified product (produced under another agency's or department's contract) to sell the equipment directly to qualified customers after the equipment has been tested and endorsed by NSA.
