To gain the end-to-end supply chain visibility and real-time, accurate data needed for better decision-making and the ability to deliver at the speed of mission demand, federal agencies must leverage flexible new approaches and technologies. Success, however, hinges on assessing supply chain health before designing and executing a holistic strategy that integrates advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, the cloud and other digital tools. In so doing, agencies can achieve sustainable performance improvements, cost savings, and the ability to mitigate risk throughout the supply lifecycle.

How we can help

Recognized by ALM Intelligence as a global leader in Supply Chain Planning, KPMG brings a century of federal experience and the full breadth and scope of our worldwide practice to help clients develop a more dynamic, innovative, and high-performing supply chain. We utilize proprietary tools and a proven Maturity Assessment approach to identify inefficiencies and underperformance across the supply chain and then design and execute a quantitative plan that prioritizes improvements, aligns with risk and compliance requirements, integrates the right technologies, and transforms the supply chain.

What are the potential benefits?

  • Increased ability for agencies to meet or exceed mission readiness and performance requirements—with a built-in ability to maintain and build on process gains.
  • A significant increase in the velocity, visibility, and accuracy of the supply chain process for improved decision-making and more consistent end-to-end performance.
  • Cost savings and avoidance across the lifecycle—from procurement and warehousing to transportation and reverse logistics.
  • Reduction in risk of counterfeit or obsolete parts that compromise mission performance and increased compliance with governance and regulatory requirements.
