In order to assist contractors in managing the coming defense expansion, CDI has created a new service, which it calls On-Going Support services.

CDI expects that during the expansion contractors will not simply experience more of the same, meaning more contracts. Rather, CDI expects that contractors will experience larger contracts exceeding regulatory thresholds never before experienced by those contractors. In addition, contractors may even receive contracts of a different type as a result of the larger values and expedited procurement schedules. Contractors may also experience increased levels of constructive changes and a need to prepare and settle Requests for Equitable Adjustment (REA) as a result of those changes

CDI On-Going Support services helps contractors prepare for and manage the requirements of the coming expansion.

In addition, DCMA will include in their contractor purchasing system reviews an assessment of contractor compliance with the Safeguarding CUI requirements at those contractors as well as at the Tier 1 contractors with whom they award contracts.
