    Priority

    Define and communicate policies and procedures to ensure that its products, system components, systems, and services comply with its cybersecurity and SCRM requirements. This recommendation includes:

    • Identification and prioritization of externally provided systems (new and legacy), components, and services.
    • How HUD maintains awareness of its upstream suppliers.
    • The integration of acquisition processes tools, and techniques to use the acquisition process to protect the supply chain.
    • Contract tools or procurement methods to confirm that contractors are meeting their obligations (derived from OIG FISMA metric 14).

    Status

    In May 2024, HUD OIG reviewed the Office of the Chief Information Officer’s progress is closing this recommendation as part of the annual FY 2024 FISMA evaluation. At that time, HUD provided additional evidence in the form of draft SCRM Policy, SCRM Procedures, SCRMES Charter, and a SCRM Technical Roadmap. Additionally, HUD provided agency-specific clauses. At the time, the guidance had not yet been finalized.


    Analysis

    To fully address this recommendation, HUD must establish that it has defined and communicated policies and procedures to ensure that its products, system components, systems, and services comply with its cybersecurity and SCRM requirements. Implementation of this recommendation will result in HUD continuing to mature in supply chain risk management, establishing and defining the policies and procedures of SCRM requirements as it relates to systems and system components.
