Arrington, 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, serves as the central coordinator and integrator within the OUSDA and Sustainment (OUSD(A&S)), to align acquisition cyber strategy. As the cyber lead and programmatic analytic advisor for strategic cyber programs, she is responsible for conducting analysis within the major defense acquisition program portfolio and across the DoD.
From an unprecedented global demand surge in personal protective equipment to supply-side challenges like port congestion and plant closures, the COVID-19 pandemic has illustrated the importance of supply chain resilience.
As businesses continue to adapt to the changing environment, technology and innovation have expedited the transformation of both the private and public sectors. On the panel, Arrington will utilize her knowledge and expertise to discuss how federal and industry leaders can prepare for the future.
The panel will share their perspectives on the state of public-private collaboration and how coordination at the strategic and tactical levels can strengthen supply chain response to future challenges.
Arrington will serve on the panel alongside Tim Rice of MIT, Lt. Gen. Darrell Williams with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and VADM Raquel Bono, director of COVID-19 Health System Response Management. Stuart Jones, director of Supply Chain Management with LMI will moderate the event.
