Please join Baker Tilly and Rogers Joseph O'Donnell on Feb. 4, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. EST for an insightful discussion on supply chain risk management (SCRM) and what its use in recent solicitations means for federal contractors. The result will be many government initiatives, and new contract requirements, obligating companies to improve and disclose measures taken to assess and minimize supply change risks. Even before “SolarWinds,” the federal government had increased a regulatory focus on strengthening and securing the federal supply chain. In the Biden administration, even stronger supply chain measures are expected. Federal procurements have increasingly included requirements for offerors to describe SCRM practices and provide detailed plans-of-action to protect hardware, software and embedded components from compromise (otherwise known as a “SCRM plan”). Given the anxiety over secure sources of supply and the damage done by “SolarWinds,” organizations serving federal customers should map the present and expected landscape of SCRM requirements and carefully consider strategy, tools, techniques and implementation to produce strong “SCRM plans,” which meet or exceed acquisition demands.
