The Federal Acquisition Security Council will meet with agencies for the first time to form a risk reduction strategy for the federal supply chain, Federal News Network reported Thursday.
The plan will highlight potential government efforts that would reduce risks in the federal supply chain and implement an information-sharing environment to facilitate procurement activities.
A representative from the Office of Management and Budget will chair the council. Membership will be composed of senior-level executives from multiple federal components including the Department of Defense, the Department of Commerce and the General Services Administration.
The information and communications technology supply chain risk management task force within the Department of Homeland Security's National Risk Management Center will help the council develop policies that can guide the government's purchases of commercial technology products.
