Supply Chain
Navigating through Sequestration

No challenge has been greater for government contractors than dealing with budget uncertainties and the prospect of massive changes to contracts and requirements for the future. Many companies "baked in" plans to deal with the worst-case scenarios, while those with more flexibility had alternative plans in place. In this session we'll hear how organizations of varying size dealt with and still are dealing with critical budget changes and the impact to the enterprise value chain.
