Partners with DTC Global and Regan Edens to Enhance Compliance with DFARS and Achieve CMMC Level II Certification

ARLINGTON, Texas, November 9, 2023 – GracoRoberts announced it has retained the services of DTC Global as a critical next step in preparation for its CMMC DoD Level II Certification, to be timed with the United States Government’s roll out of the new CMMC certification rule.  Regan Edens, who leads DTC Global and this effort, is the nationally recognized authority on the Department of Defense (DoD) data security and compliance requirements under DFARS contract clauses 252.204-7012, 7019, 7020, and 7024, having closely advised the very first small business to successfully pass its CMMC audit. 

DoD Level II Certification is essential for individuals and organizations that work with the Department of Defense and handle sensitive information or operate information systems. For all of GracoRoberts’ Classified Program and commercial customers, it offers peace of mind that our employees have the necessary knowledge and skills to protect information and infrastructure effectively.

"This dedicated effort and investment demonstrate our unwavering commitment to protect and serve our customers, our military services, and the defense of our nation."
