WASHINGTON – Today, ITI Senior Vice President of Policy and General Counsel John Miller presented the global tech industry’s perspective on implementing supply chain resiliency. In testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, Miller focused on the need for government and industry collaboration to help ensure a coordinated, holistic, risk-based approach to support trusted, secure, reliable, and resilient global supply chains.

“The U.S. government has an unprecedented opportunity to lead on supply chain resiliency policy, and to do so it must work collectively, via public-private collaboration and across the federal government, both domestically and on the global stage,” Miller said in his testimony. “The U.S. Department of Commerce is appropriately at the center of this effort, but to succeed in implementing the many critical programs, rules and other taskings addressed in my testimony it must adopt a holistic, coordinated approach, exhibit strong leadership, embrace partnerships across industry and government, and be well-resourced and committed to the task. ITI stands ready to provide the Committee with any additional input and assistance in our collaborative efforts to develop policy approaches to supply chain resiliency that continue to leverage risk management-based solutions and public-private partnerships as the most promising way forward for addressing complex and evolving global ICT supply chain threats.”
