About This Item
General: This document is intended to prescribe consistent requirements for CSI management for organizations and suppliers who perform work for prime contractors receiving direct contracts from U.S. government agencies (i.e., first-tier or prime suppliers). The contractor, which receives the initial government contract, will receive their CSI requirements directly from the U.S. government agency and will be required per those contracts to maintain a CSI management system that ensures compliance to all requirements. The flow down of this document shall be in addition to any specific contract clauses (e.g., Federal Acquisition Regulations, Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations) required by the government to be flowed by contract to sub-tier sources. Application: This standard will be auditable with the expectation that the prime contractor will flow CSI requirements to the supply chain and periodically assess, audit, validate, and recognize compliance to AS9017 per their own processes. All manufacturers of CSIs shall comply with the requirements of SAE AS9100 or a technically equivalent quality management system standard. Special process suppliers may meet this quality management system requirement through their Nadcap certification. Any operation, process, or other action associated with the new manufacture/production of any CSI, shall only be performed by sources meeting the applicable requirements of this document.
