NAVSUP to Boost Engagement with Supply Chain Partners

Jeff Brody

Amid U.S. Navy Secretary and 2019 Wash100 Award recipient Richard Spencer’s call to reinforce the capabilities of the service branch, the Naval Supply Systems Command plans to update its business practices to address supply chain gaps. NAVSUP will foster relationships with partners through the use of key performance indicators and executive forums to share information on supply chain concerns and develop strategic efforts through the Strategic Supplier Relationship Management program, the Navy said Friday.

“Through more proactive and collaborative sharing of information, bottlenecks and vulnerabilities can be avoided,” said Karen Fenstermacher, executive for strategic initiatives at NAVSUP.

In addition, the command utilized qualitative and quantitative methods to validate potential partners including Boeing, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin.

Cheri Caddy of the NSA, Keith Nakasone of GSA, Daniel Kroese of DHS’ NRMC, Don Davidson of Synopsys and Tina Kuhn of Cybercore Technologies will be featured as panelists during Potomac Officers Club’s 2019 Secure Supply Chain Forum on July 18th with Jill Singer of AT&T, 2019 Wash100 Award recipient, serving as the panel’s moderator. Kristen Baldwin of DoD will serve as the keynote speaker for the forum as well.
