The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) developed the Cybersecurity Considerations for Procurement Process decision tree to provide a high-level overview of key questions to consider regarding when agency cybersecurity experts should be consulted by facility staff in the procurement of new equipment, systems, or services. Ensuring cybersecurity from the onset of the process is an important step in protecting federal facility assets, systems, and sites and can help reduce the number of weaknesses or vulnerabilities that must be remediated after the fact.
