Counterfeit Parts Prevention, Detection, and Resolution

An article in this week’s Federal Times entitled "Fake Parts: A Pentagon Supply Chain Problem Hiding in Plain Sight" caught my eye, once again highlighting the criticality of counterfeit parts detection, reporting, and prevention in support of our DoD supply chains. Fortunately, there are a wide range of available resources, policy, guidance, insights, and information to assist our DoD systems and sustaining engineers, life cycle logisticians, product support managers, and supply chain managers in addressing this vitally important topic. As a public service, permit me to share a few (note: this list is not all inclusive):

Statute

DoD Policy

DoD Guidance

Regulations

GAO Reports

DAU Learning Assets

DAU LOG Blog Posts

GIDEP Resources

Standardization Documents
