S. Rept. 117-43: Supply Chain Security Training Act of 2021, Report to Accompany S. 2201, Including Cost Estimate of the Congressional Budget Office, October 26, 2021   [open pdf - 342KB]

From the Purpose and Summary: "S. 2201, the Supply Chain Security Training Act of 2021, directs the General Services Administration (GSA) to develop a training program to prepare personnel at all federal agencies to identify and mitigate supply chain threats that arise during the acquisition of various products and services, including information and communications technology (ICT). Recent major cyber attacks and incidents involving outside vendors show that supply chains present serious challenges to the security of federal agencies and their information technology networks. There is, however, no governmentwide supply chain security training that federal personnel must complete. This lack of standardized training puts federal agencies and the American public at risk. Developing and implementing a standardized supply chain security training program for procurement and acquisitions personnel will allow federal agencies to better understand and mitigate threats and vulnerabilities in their supply chains. The training can be integrated into existing agency training processes and will include information on current threats and known vulnerabilities. S. 2201 will also make the training available to legislative and judicial branch officials."
