There are three types of NIACAP accreditation, depending on what is being certified. They are:
1. Site accreditation - Evaluates the applications and systems at a specific, self-contained location

2. Type accreditation - Evaluates an application or system that is distributed to a number of different locations

3. System accreditation - Evaluates a major application or general support system

Process

Answer b is a distracter; the NIACAP applies to each of the other three accreditation types and may be tailored to meet the specific needs of the organization and IS. A site accreditation (answer a) evaluates the applications and systems at a specific, self-contained location. A type accreditation (answer b) evaluates an application or system that is distributed to multiple locations. A system accreditation (answer c) evaluates a major application or general support system.
