JAIC focused on battlefield, JADC2

The Pentagon's Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) has made big investments in bringing AI to the battlefield. The JAIC has spent more money in fiscal 2020 on its Joint Warfighting Mission Initiative than its five other focus areas combined, acting Director Nand Mulchandani said without revealing specific budget numbers. A big focus under that umbrella is Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2), the next-generation network-of-networks the military is developing to link operations across sea, air, land, space and cyber, Mulchandani said.

Billy Mitchell has more from the VA.

GSA includes CMMC requirements in small business contract

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) requirements haven't officially shown up in Department of Defense contracts yet, but they have made their way into a $50 billion governmentwide IT contract for disadvantaged small businesses. The General Services Administration included language about CMMC in the STARS III contract, posted earlier this week. GSA says it "reserves the right" to require CMMC certifications for small businesses awarded spots on the governmentwide IT contracting vehicle. "While CMMC is currently a DoD requirement, it may also have utility as a baseline for civilian acquisitions; so it is vital that contractors wishing to do business on 8(a) STARS III monitor, prepare for and participate in acquiring CMMC certification," the GSA contract says. More from Jackson.
