However, you state you are undertaking IS1&3 but not 2 why is that.  And
given the nature of IS1&3 why are you using CRAMM?

Beaucse IS2 is th building of Accreditation Document sets - which fall outside 
the remit, as does IS4 and IS5.

Finally, are you looking to use the OSSTMM as in internal testing
standard or one to level contracts against?  I ask because your
questioning alludes to a non technical level of expertise but you are
discussing a methodology to undertake technical testing.

We are looking for an internal testing methodology.  We already have an very 
technical internal testing system in place, but it is home grown and our 
accreditors wish for something more recognised.  

This accounts for why we have to use CRAMM as well as IS1.  Now IS1 is a good 
back of a fag packet stuff, useful in management meetings and the like but 
our accreditors don't trust it for some reason.
