Project: Logistics Supply Chain Management System (LSCMS)
Description: Hurricane Katrina demonstrated FEMA’s need to implement a comprehensive, integrated, end-to-end supply chain management capability that delivered life-sustaining commodities, including commodity tracking. LSCMS was established to support this need and fulfill Recommendation No. 38 from the President’s Report on Hurricane Katrina, Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5: National Incident Management, and the DHS goal of building a nimble emergency response system. The goal was to improve speed/performance/accountability of receipt, inventory, deployment, and distribution of disaster commodities/assets, enabling FEMA to support and sustain efficient/effective responses to multiple disasters.
