MISI's work includes an almost two year deep dive into studying the challenges and state of the defense industrial base (DIB) as it pertains to DFARS-7012 and readiness for the new CMMC requirements.

MISI and its DreamPort team provide stewardship over the DoD's Project Spectrum program that is working with Mentor Protege Program companies, DoD small business offices and a wide array of manufacturing institutes, national labs, military academies, colleges, and government entities to build a robust ecosystem in support of the DIB.
