More About RSM:

RSM has become one of 29 organizations to be certified as CMMC third party assessors (C3PAO). We can provide a full turnkey CMMC solution to the middle market, allowing our clients the ability to quickly and easily move to an Azure or Microsoft 365 Government Community Cloud High (GCC High) environment, which allows clients to bid on and service government contracts in a secure environment.

  • By pursuing the government contracting ERP market now, RSM is capitalizing on a strategic opportunity for RSM and Microsoft to capture market shares.
  • RSM already has over 1000 government contractor clients representing $300M+ of business across our consulting, audit, and tax practices. We see tremendous opportunity for growth, especially in technology consulting.
  • There is an addressable market in excess of $10B for the 350,000 contractors to develop and maintain CMMC compliance.
  • The RSM GovCon product, which is available on AppSource, leverages the power of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 modern cloud platform to provide government contractors with a full-service ERP solution that will support a Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) audit and comply with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and Cost Accounting Standards (CAS).
  • RSM has also developed a holistic security solution that leverages Microsoft 365, the Azure Well-Architected Framework, Secure Score, Identity Score, Microsoft Defender for Cloud, and Microsoft Sentinel in an enclaved environment to meet CMMC standards. We plan to add this CMMC Compliance Enclave offering to AppSource in the near future.
  • RSM’s Microsoft GCC High offerings span Microsoft 365, Azure, and Dynamics 365.
  • RSM has developed an assessment-to-implementation roadmap for contractors looking to become CMMC-compliant and standardized on a GCC High platform.
  • RSM has made CMMC compliance more achievable and affordable by offering GCC High enclaves that separate government contracting work from the rest of the business.
  • RSM is using Microsoft pre-sales workshops such as FastTrack and PACE to attract and educate RSM clients and prospects.
