ABOUT DCAP and DCAP PARTNERS
Through the past successful Defense Manufacturing Assistance Programs, The University of Michigan, The Ohio State University, and Purdue University, have extensive and successful experience in providing services to impacted companies and communities. Support for the program comes from the Department of Defense’s Office of Economic Adjustment and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.
While operating the DMAP, the University of Michigan and its partners recognized the resource challenges companies were facing in their quest toward becoming compliant with the newly required NIST 800-171 guidelines. The program identified that with the appropriate connection to funding and expert cyber security consultants the path toward compliance had a much higher success rate. Thus, DCAP will support the DOD’s goals to retain the critical manufacturing infrastructure, capacity, and capabilities to meet national security priorities
