Buyer Beware: Integrating Cybersecurity Into the Acquisition Process
This publication was created by the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) and the NASCIO, representing Chief Information Officers of the States. In this latest iteration, the Center for Internet Security (CIS) brought their cybersecurity expertise to the effort. This publication will address steps state governments should take to ensure cybersecurity is an integral part of the acquisition process. It will also build upon previous acquisition reformation and transformation work and publications from a partnership between NASCIO and NASPO (the National Association of State Procurement Officials) that started in 2016.
