President Biden has nominated Michael Brown, head of the Defense Innovation Unit, as the next under secretary of defense for acquisition and sustainment. If the Senate confirms him, he will have to ensure the health of the defense supply chain after major impacts from coronavirus.

  • Tara Murphy Dougherty, Chief Executive Officer at Govini, said reshoring and nearshoring with allies and partners will combat the staggering 420% growth in Chinese suppliers in the first five tiers of the defense supply chain over the past 10 years.
  • Dougherty said it is important to determine what can actually be reshored before figuring out how to do so.
  • Dougherty said Mike Brown’s nomination shows the Biden administration’s strong position on expanding the focus of the defense industrial base to the national security innovation base.
