  • Improve the impact of supplier scouting services to build domestic supplier capabilities
  • Mitigate risks in existing manufacturing supply chains
  • Fortify and expand regional manufacturing supply networks
  • Connect individual manufactures with larger primes and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs)

NIST Supplier Scouting

The White House announced Executive Order (EO) 14005 – Executive Order on Ensuring the Future is Made in All of America by All American Workers, in January 2021. Through this EO, the MEP National NetworkTM (MEPNN) has been assigned the task of identifying manufacturers with desired production and technical capabilities and integrating them into larger supply chain networks. Additionally, the MEPNN connects suppliers with purchasers looking to fulfil their Build America, Buy America requirements.

With current supply chain conditions affecting small and medium-sized manufacturers the most, GENEDGE aims to make connecting with desired suppliers and purchasers easier through our supplier scouting services.
