The purpose of the new government entity is to work with the private sector to better secure U.S. supply chains.

The Biden-Harris Administration has announced the new Supply Chain Resilience Center (SCRC). The purpose of the new government entity is to work with the private sector to better secure U.S. supply chains. The SCRC will be responsible for analyzing vulnerabilities within the supply chain, planning for various scenarios that could lead to disruptions, and ensuring reliable delivery of goods and services. To help accomplish its mission, the SCRC will use the Department of Homeland Security’s authority and information to keep U.S. supply chains safe and secure.

In a recent quote, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas said, “Securing our critical infrastructure is fundamental to staying competitive in a 21st century economy, and the Department of Homeland Security’s new Supply Chain Resilience Center will enhance our efforts to do just that. The global pandemic has revealed that the supply chains that Americans rely upon for food and essential other goods must be more robust and resilient. Conflict, political instability, and climate change could challenge our supply chains in the years ahead. The Supply Chain Resilience Center will help American businesses and the federal government anticipate these disruptions and play a key role in the Biden-Harris Administration’s work to prevent them.”
