The agreement provides a preemptive response to assess, identify, and mitigate multifactor supply chain risks using Interos' first of its kind relationship discovery and scoring methodology. It supports the government-wide mandate to shore up the nation's defense industrial base which has been brought to the forefront due to crises such as the Russia/Ukraine War and through White House forced labor listings and Executive Orders 14017 and 14028.

The enterprise approach will integrate monitoring, alerting and other risk reduction capabilities across numerous government sourcing programs. At a time of heightened national security concerns, it also strengthens the DoD's operational performance and deterrent capabilities. Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA) hailed the agreement, saying: "Interos' innovative digital supply chain management technologies will support Navy operations and ensure that our forces are getting high-quality shipments on time. This is an important moment for strengthening the Navy's supply chain resiliency and enabling the Navy to be intentional about where it sources its needs, along every step of its supply chain.
