Webinar: DLA and Supply Chain Impacts

April 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Supply Chain Committee of the NDIA Manufacturing Division is hosting this webinar to help the Defense Logistics Agency find ways to identify impacts on defense supply chains of COVID-19, especially the small and medium sized businesses.  Join Cathy Contreras, Acquisition Executive for DLA Aviation and other DLA executives for a discussion on how we can avoid the loss of businesses which critical DoD supply chains.

DLA seeks your input on how to identify specific companies that are at risk of going out of business and explore ways in which DLA may be able to help.  The webinar invites your input on the following questions:

  • How can industry identify specific companies who supply critical parts AND who may be at risk of going out of business?  How could DLA identify and aid these businesses?
  • What challenges are you having in engaging with DoD regarding contractual matters in the COVID-19 environment?  What suggestions do you have to drive improvements?
  • In the next six to twelve months, what will we wish we’d done TODAY to mitigate impacts of COVID-19 on Defense suppliers?

Ahead of the webinar please submit your comments or responses to these questions to Irv Varkonyi (ivarkonyi@scopedu.com).
