DOD Needs to Improve Reporting and Oversight to Reduce Supply Chain Risk

Anne-Liese Heinichen

This GAO report highlights the lack of reporting of suspect and confirmed counterfeit parts. Despite government mandates, counterfeit part reporting appears to lack oversight and direction from appropriate government agencies. The industry has not been provided with a standardized process for reporting, contractors appear to be reluctant to report data and a lack of proper governmental oversight have resulted in GIDEP being less effective as an “early warning” system to mitigate counterfeit parts from entering the defense supply chain. The GAO report provides much-needed recommendations to increase compliance with counterfeit reporting requirements.
