In February, President Biden released an Executive Order on America’s supply chain, tasking the federal government to strengthen the resilience of key #manufacturing supply chains including critical materials. A part of its mission to improve the productivity, competitiveness, energy efficiency, and security of U.S. manufacturing, the Advanced Manufacturing Office is working across the federal government on these efforts.

We invite you to help identify risks in the supply chain for strategic and critical materials as well as policy recommendations to address these risks through a U.S. Department of Defense Request for Information. Submissions are due by April 28: https://bit.ly/3t2hrlf.
