NDUF applauds Siemens Government Technologies for their leadership in the PRINCIPAL TO PRINCIPAL GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN TASK FORCE: REIMAGING THE GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN POST COVID-19.  

"We must invest now in the digital tools needed to prepare for the next unforeseen or unpredictable crisis. These technologies not only provide a way to better see, secure and leverage the supply chain, but also can create much needed advanced manufacturing jobs for communities around the Nation. A key road to America's recovery and its future preparedness is a digital one."

Summary

The COVID-19 pandemic revealed weaknesses in global supply chains for critical goods. It also exposed a national response that sometimes lacked coordination between the private sector and federal, state, and local governments. This report from Principal to Principal examines those shortcomings and proposes solutions to increase the visibility, transparency, and resiliency of global supply chains.

Recommendations:

1. Create a Forcing Function: Transform the National Response Coordination Center to a modernized National Preparedness, Coordination & Response Center (NPCRC) within DHS that reports directly to the President of the United States.

2. Establish a National Supply Chain Institute (SCI).

3. Develop, implement, and maintain a supply chain resiliency strategy to integrate next-generation solutions for surge capacity, stockpiling, and training/re-skilling of workers to increase preparedness and rapid response in national crises.
