NCMS is assisting our government partners and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in preparing a list of companies with manufacturing capabilities that may play a role in solving critical supply shortages. There is a need to understand the current/future supply base to expedite potential future communications. Review the list of needs below and if you feel your company may be able to contribute, please complete the company profile form.

DOD’s COVID-19 Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF) has prioritized ventilator and ventilator components as our highest priority items of interest at this point.  Second priorities are masks and face shields.  View the full list below or with 4 week and 8 week capacities here.

Response Readiness Levels (RRL): What You Need to Know

Response Readiness Levels (RRL) are quantitative measures used to assess the readiness of a manufacturer to respond to an order for the COVID-19 supplies listed by FEMA.  They are used to provide decision makers at all levels with a common understanding of the relative manufacturers capability, maturity and attendant risks associated with a potential solicitation and manufacturers responses for the listed FEMA supplies.
