The Need for a Domestic PPE Supply Chain

The entire domestic supply chain for American-made PPE agrees that several policies need to be enacted. Below are principles that support the production of PPE in the U.S. through a long-term domestic supply chain:

  • Create strong domestic procurement rules for federal PPE purchases substantially similar to the Berry Amendment and the Kissell Amendment
  • Implement forward-looking policies to shore up the Strategic National Stockpile and to identify, incentivize, and maintain a robust domestic supply chain for PPE and medical supplies
  • Create federal incentives for private sector purchases of domestically produced PPE
  • Provide funding assistance for companies to reconstitute domestic PPE supply chains
  • Strengthen the Berry Amendment
