Join us and learn about Naval Supply Systems Command's transformation of the Navy supply chain using its Naval Sustainment System-Supply initiative. The approach is holistic and includes efforts in a variety of areas including: Demand Management, Cash Management (Optimizing Working Capital Fund), Supplier Partnership (Shape Industrial Base), Optimizing Organic Repair and Increasing End-to-End Velocity. These core competencies are areas used across the DoD and the panelists are ready to knowledge-share best practices, challenges and more regarding the initiative.
The Naval Sustainment System-Supply initiative began to improve supply chain readiness, a crucial component for combat and noncombat naval operations. It is part of the DoD's collective response to combat near-peer nations that continue to threaten U.S. national interests.
The session will begin with an overview covering the basics of Naval Sustainment System-Supply and will assume no prior knowledge. Following the presentation, the floor will be open to the panel of experts for questions and comments.
This is the third in a series of webinars hosted by U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command Weapon Systems Support. The series is intended to inform federal acquisition, technology and logistics professionals with a variety of relevant topics on which NAVSUP WSS personnel can provide expert knowledge. The series is held quarterly on the second Tuesday of the month at 11 a.m. Eastern time.
