Ideas that work: Improving government supply chain efficiency—Video

Accenture Federal Services’ Elaine Beeman addresses key ideas government agencies can use to elicit efficiencies from existing supply chain practices.

Some of the biggest challenges associated with government efficiency lie within the need to extract greater value from existing processes. Supply chain efficiency is an idea that works because within the US federal government, supply chain management represents both a vital necessity, and a substantial ongoing cost. Finding opportunities for greater efficiency in government supply chain today has the opportunity to deliver returns for years to come.

One opportunity for driving efficiency within federal supply chain management is in the area of demand forecasting, understanding the forces that impact demand and planning for those in a way that ensures inventory is optimized to match demand.

In this short video, Accenture Federal Services’ Elaine Beeman addresses key ideas government agencies can use to elicit efficiencies and savings from existing supply chain practices.
