DOD PPE Virtual Information Day – Follow Up With Resource Links

Published On: July 15, 2020

Domestic PPE Industry Stakeholders:

On Tuesday, July 14 and Wednesday, July 15, the Department of Defense’s COVID-19 Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF) and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), in coordination with interagency partners, hosted a virtual information day regarding current and future demand for personal protective equipment (PPE).  

Event organizers indicated that a recording of both days of the webinar, along with the presentation materials, will be available on the JATF website ( no later than July 30, 2020.

The goal of the webinar was to provide current and potential suppliers of PPE an understanding of PPE requirements from across multiple sectors of the economy, including the U.S. government and trade associations representing medical and non-medical industry. Organizers also wanted to facilitate a dialogue between industry and the government regarding how current investments in domestic production may be supported by government and industry’s long-term planning for consumption of domestically produced PPE.  The target audience for the webinar was current and potential domestic producers of PPE (end-items as well as sub-tier suppliers of material) and consumers of PPE, namely major industry trade associations and hospital and medical network representatives. 

See below for a list of useful resources discussed during the webinar.
