Stephen Dubernas, Chief of DLA’s Whole of Government Division, discusses the operation in the division and the services it provides outside of defense.
The Defense Logistics Agency is providing logistics support for crisis response, and is beginning to serve more than just defense agencies. Stephen Dubernas, Chief of DLA’s Whole of Government Division, tells Government Matters more about what the Whole of Government Division is, and how the agency can provide for civilian agencies as well as defense. “The mission of the Whole of Government Division is to support the nation and our inter-agency partners with supply chain solutions when the nation needs it most,” Dubernas tells Government Matters. “As a defense agency, we have 26-thousand employees. We support the war-fighter every day, but we also have capacity in place so when our nation goes into duress, or an agency partner needs support, or even an international partner need support, DLA is viewed as a national asset. We can provide our supply chain capabilities to our inter-agency partners just as we would our war-fighters.”
