No unclassified information meeting the requirements of section 2 a of this order shall be disapproved for inclusion as CUI, but the Executive Agent may resolve conflicts among categories and subcategories of CUI to achieve uniformity and may determine the markings to be used.

The 13565 that these agency-specific policies are often hidden from public view has only aggravated these issues. For systems operated on behalf of the government, the OMB Guidance requires that agencies include contract language to ensure that the contractor- operated systems meet or exceed the information security continuous monitoring requirements identified in OMB M, and the agency has the ability to perform information security continuous monitoring and IT security scanning of the contractor systems with tools and infrastructure chosen by the agency.

However, such uniformity may be difficult to achieve, because some categories of sensitive information are based on statute, or have existing regulatory schemes that already establish marking, safeguarding, and dissemination procedures for SSI, CVI, and PCII, for example.

At present, executive departments and agencies agencies employ ad hoc, agency-specific policies, procedures, and markings to safeguard and control this information, such as information that involves privacy, security, proprietary business interests, and law enforcement investigations.

The Advisory should not be construed as legal advice or opinion, and is not a substitute for the advice of counsel. This order establishes an open and uniform program for managing information that requires safeguarding or dissemination controls pursuant to and consistent with law, regulations, and Government-wide policies, excluding information that is classified under Executive Order of December 29,or the Atomic Energy Act, as amended.

Within days from the date of the Executive Order, each agency head must submit a catalogue of proposed categories and subcategories of CUI. Although the final rule specifies that agencies must include in agreements directions to comply with the final rule and the CUI Registry when handling CUI, the absence of uniform agreement language at this point in time may create the same sort of confusion and inconsistency that the final rule is designed to address.


The Guidance directs GSA to create a business due diligence shared service to provide agencies with access to risk information drawn from voluntary contractor reporting, public records, and other publicly available data. Notably, NIST SP allows a contractor to limit the application of these requirements by implementing subnetworks with firewalls or other boundary protection in order to isolate CUI into its own security domain.

Such directives shall be made available to the public and shall provide policies and procedures concerning marking, safeguarding, dissemination, and decontrol of CUI that, to the extent practicable and permitted by law, regulation, and Government-wide policies, shall remain consistent across categories and subcategories of CUI and throughout the executive branch.
