From the Executive Summary: "The Department of Defense (DoD) requires healthy, resilient, diverse, and secure supply chains to ensure the development and sustainment of capabilities critical to national security. The ongoing COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic highlighted vulnerabilities in complex global supply chains in very real ways to the public, government, and industry. Beyond COVID-19, supply chain disruptions have become more frequent and severe overall. In order to strengthen the national industrial base during times of disruption, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. signed Executive Order (E.O.) 14017, America's Supply Chains, on February 24, 2021. The E.O. calls for a comprehensive review of supply chains in critical sectors, including the defense industrial base (DIB). This report provides DoD's assessment of supply chains in the DIB and articulates the Department's plans to ensure security of supply for items vital to national security."
