The Federal Acquisition Security Council, who will work closely with the Department of Homeland Security’s National Risk Management Center, is close to holding its first meeting with agencies.
At an ACT-IAC panel in Washington, NRMC Director Bob Kolasky said that the council is composed of senior agency leadership at the director or undersecretary level from over half a dozen agencies.
The article goes on to say:
“It requires each agency to elevate the importance they take in managing their own supply chain while working together,” Kolasky said.
The council will put together a strategic plan, which will be comprised of a list of government initiatives to reduce federal supply chain risk, as well as a “combined information-sharing environment” that acquisition officials can reference during the procurement process.
“It will be hopefully something that’s available across the government in a way that enables consistent decision-making,” Kolasky said.
