The leaders of the House Armed Services Committee’s Critical Supply Chain Task Force are examining what the Defense Department needs that it’s having trouble getting. Allies and partners can lower supply chain risks, according to Jerry McGinn, executive director of the Center for Government Contracting at George Mason University and former principal deputy director for manufacturing and industrial base at the Defense Department.

  • McGinn said he would like the White House to clarify guidance on the importance of allies and partners, such as Japan, the UK, Australia and Canada, to the industrial base.
  • Expanding the “buy American” concept to include allies would be a win-win approach, said McGinn.
  • McGinn said the United States can build on existing programs to strengthen opportunities for companies to work with close partners and allies.
