Industrial Security Program
The industrial Security Program prescribes requirements, restrictions, and other safeguards that are necessary to prevent unauthorized disclosure of classified information and to control authorized disclosure of information released by the HQMC Staff Agencies to their contractors.  The prescribed Federal guidance is the National Industrial Security Program Manual (NISPOM).

The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) defines a “Classified Contract” as “Any contract that requires, or will require access to classified information (confidential, secret, top secret) by the contractor or its employees in the performance of the contract.  A contract may be a classified contract even though the contract documents are not classified.”

The DD Form 254 (Contract Security Classification Specifications) will be used for classified contracts.  This form is used to identify other security requirements and classification guidance that is needed for the performance of a classified contract.
