Jacobs: Challenging today.
Reinventing tomorrow.


Moshe Nelson, a Partner at Guidehouse, an ALN Board of Directors Member, was published in the Homeland Security Today web publication. His essay is titled “The Roles of Diplomacy and Homeland Security in a New Supply Chain World Order.” In it, Mr. Nelson points out lessons learned about supply chain security scenario modeling during the pandemic and how U.S. Departments of Homeland Security and State play major roles in guiding all agencies in advancing their supply chain security. “Such scenarios are not simply focused on traditional supply chain logistics but incorporate a dynamic set of factors, such as political, environmental, financial, and security factors.


Dorothy Robyn, a former U.S. Federal Agency Director, and an ALN supporter, published an editorial in The Brookings Institution’s blog on how to apply “BRAC” concepts to reduce federal spending. Building off House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s comments about using a “Base Realignment and Closure” approach to reduce federal spending, Ms. Robyn explains what could work and what would not work. Having run the DoD facilities and GSA Public Building Service, Ms. Robyn’s opinions are based in real-world experience and worth consideration.
