Eric Crusius, partner at Holland & Knight, discusses the new efforts to ensure supply chain security, and the impact they will have on contractors.


The SECURE Technology Act was signed into law late last year, and it includes provisions designed to ensure a secure supply chain. Federal contractors now have strict rules to follow. Eric Crusius, partner at Holland & Knight, says that the need for supply chain security is higher due to the government’s security concerns over foreign suppliers.   “We have a global economy now. Most companies will source goods from outside of the United States at times. The government is obviously very concerned about that because it is easy for a foreign geopolitical foe to put something in a product that can adversely affect the United States, that’s what they have accused Huawei and Kaspersky of doing,” Crusius said. “You’ll see the government I think come up with more solutions to more closely look at supply chains. I think when contractors are applying to sell to the federal government, responding to a solicitation, one of the factors may be ‘How good is your supply chain and what does it look like?’”
