Job Description:

The hiring manager for this role is aware of the demanding responsibilities and qualifications described in this posting.  Should you possess the fundamental knowledge, skill, and experience in the profession of Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM), you are encouraged to apply, as we are a learning organization with significant mentoring and training opportunities for your professional growth.  This is a rewarding career opportunity in an emerging field that requires intellectual curiosity and a willingness to adapt, learn and continuously improve.

Primary Responsibilities

As a SCRM Leader, you are responsible for defining, maintaining, continuously improving, and representing our overall competency and commitment to the integrity of supply chain activities performed across the entire lifecycle of the advanced technology solutions we develop, deliver and support.   You are both a strategic leader and a hands-on individual contributor to the role of mitigating conditions that reduce the impact of providing critical manufacturing capacity, availability, and integrity to our customers. 

Your primary responsibilities for this important role include:

  • Diminishing Manufacturing Source and Material Shortages (DMSMS) Program – you plan, execute and report in accordance with a structured DMSMS strategy for managing the risk of obsolescence for electronic, electrical, and mechanical parts. This responsibility includes identifying various tools that may be useful for analyzing and tracking the effectiveness of the DMSMS program.  DMSMS responsibility includes assuring compliance to requirements internally as well as externally with suppliers and subcontractors.
  • Counterfeit Prevention Policy (CPP) Program – you plan, execute and report in accordance with a structured CPP strategy to prevent the introduction of counterfeit materiel at any level of the DoD supply chain.  This responsibility includes assuring procurement process prevention, controlling parts identified as counterfeit, and reporting counterfeit parts to users and Government investigative authorities to defend the DoD against counterfeit material that poses a threat to personnel safety and mission assurance.  CPP responsibility includes assuring compliance to requirements internally as well as externally with suppliers and subcontractors.
  • Program Support and Collaboration – you support a range of programs at different stages along the program life cycle and are responsible for creating and/or managing the creation of data item deliverables, as well as executing, monitoring, controlling, and reporting progress of the work described therein.  This responsibility includes personal accountability as well as demanding accountability from various internal and external contributors. 
  • Process Development, Knowledge Capture, and Continuous Improvement – you are responsible for generating standard work processes and standard work products as your response to the program demand for SCRM, PMP, DMSMS and CPP work activities and work products. You are responsible for establishing effective processes while capturing and maximizing reuse of knowledge, as well as continuously improving our capability to respond.
