On Tuesday, July 14 and Wednesday, July 15, the Department of Defense’s COVID-19 Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF) and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), in coordination with interagency partners, will host a virtual information day regarding current and future demand for personal protective equipment (PPE).
Goal: The goal of the PPE Information Day is two-fold:
1) Provide current and potential suppliers of medical and non-medical PPE an understanding of requirements from across multiple sectors of the economy, including the U.S. government, non-medical industry, and medical industry; and
2) facilitate a dialogue between industry and the government regarding how current investments in domestic production may be supported by government and industry's long-term planning for consumption of domestically produced PPE.
Target Audience: Current and potential domestic producers of PPE (end-items as well as sub-tier suppliers of material) and major trade associations and members, representing consumers of PPE.
Location: Virtual event (Zoom webcast, specific details TBD)
