An excerpt from the recent GAO report on the DoD CMMC:

"DIBCAC officials told us that from their experience, few companies generally demonstrate compliance with all requirements during an assessment.

Specifically, according to DIBCAC officials, of the 110 companies DIBCAC assessed between fiscal years 2019 and 2020, about 16 percent satisfactorily demonstrated that they were meeting all requirements.

Those officials later told us that as of October 2021, with data from subsequent assessments, this number had increased to about 22 percent."
