Interos to Provide Supply Chain Risk Management Support to US Navy
The U.S. Navy has awarded Arlington, Virginia-based Interos a contract for supply chain risk management tools, intelligence and advisory support. The company will work with Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems, which seeks an SCRM solution to facilitate the delivery of combat systems across the service and to partners.
Robert Stukes, PEO IWS’ chief logistician, said Interos’ capabilities are driving risk analysis efforts to protect the supply of weapon systems from concentration risk and national security concerns such as foreign intrusions.
According to Rep. Don Beyer, the deal will encourage the Navy to exercise more caution in its acquisition process.
Risk reduction functionality such as monitoring and alerting will be implemented in various sourcing programs, Interos said.
In a press release, the company noted that the contract supports White House efforts to strengthen the defense industrial base.
The Defense Innovation Unit posted a solicitation in September 2022 for a similar solution to enhance resilience to supply chain disruptions. It sought a commercially available SCRM platform with data analytics, modeling and automation capabilities.
