DLA Releases Supply Chain Security Strategy

Jeff Brody

The Defense Logistics Agency released a new plan to address global supply chain security issues including counterfeit platform components and compromised Commercial and Government Entity supplier codes. DLA said Thursday that the Supply Chain Security Strategy collates input from Col. Scott Ritzel, executive director of the agency’s Nuclear Enterprise Support Office, as well as 20 DLA professionals.

Lt. Gen. Darrell Williams, director of the DLA, wrote in a statement on the DLA strategy’s webpage that the plan requires participation from every agency member because supply chain disruption is "not an option for the warfighter.”

“We operate a global supply chain that’s vulnerable to various threats, whether it be cyber or nefarious actors who are intentionally trying to either disrupt supply chains or present themselves as legitimate vendors,” Ritzel noted.
