The Maine MEP and AMC staff have been great to work with. Their efforts went a long way toward streamlining our production process. We are also grateful for Maine MEP's help getting our ISO 9001 certification. It was critical to landing this government contract.
Maine MEP worked closely with key employees for ISO 9001 clause interpretation, training, and documentation for compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 version of the standard. Maine MEP brought in third party cybersecurity consultants to assist with assessment and remediation to NIST 800-171. Maine MEP and its partner Maine International Trade Center were able to secure OEA grant funding to partially offset the costs of these projects.
Contingent upon an ISO 9001 compliant quality management system(QMS) and passing a DOD QMS audit, Compotech was awarded a $35,000,0000 contract for ballistic panels. Their cybersecurity assessment and remediation allows them to continue working with the DOD for both R&D and manufacturing projects.
