Homeland Security Foundation of America Focuses on Counterfeit Mitigation in the DHS Supply Chain. – PR.com

Homeland Security Foundation of America (HSFA) Public Safety Committee Chairman, Matthew Anthes, announced a plan to help identify vulnerabilities within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) supply chain. This new effort stems from a recent publication titled, “Maintaining a Secure Homeland: A Plan to keep Counterfeit Parts out of the Supply Chain”, in which HSFA discusses risks associated with government agencies using counterfeit parts. In this white paper, HSFA recommends the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other law enforcement agencies implement a risk based process for the procurement of components no longer available from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) or their authorized distributors.
