Supplier Inputs on a Central Repository for Supply Chain Risk Information

Purpose of the Survey and Requestor Contact Information

The North American Transmission Forum (NATF) is facilitating this survey to obtain initial input from suppliers on the development of a central library/repository for supply chain risk information. This is being evaluated to allow for coordinated sharing of data and to minimize level of effort required by both suppliers and companies assessing vendor supply chain risks. Summarized, aggregated and anonymized responses to this survey will be provided to solutions providers (i.e., companies that develop solutions related to supply chain risk mitigation) that may be interested in helping to design, implement and/or host the future central library. Additionally, if you respond below that you would be interested in participating in the requirements development phase, we will contact you directly for next steps.  

Supply chain risk management continues to be a risk to reliability and national security. Entities looking to implement supply chain risk management as well as government, insurers and other interested parties have begun requiring the submission of basic security and hygiene data to better assess these risks. A viable central library that can provide information to help all participants identify and mitigate this risk will significantly reduce the level of effort associated with these evolving requirements. However, developing and establishing this library in a manner that meets your needs requires your support/participation and support/participation from industry companies. The first step is obtaining good input and feedback. Your responses to this supplier-side survey will be used to guide the development of this central library to best support these efforts. A parallel effort is also underway to obtain input from industry companies. Collectively these will be used to build a leading practice library enhancing supplier risk assessment.


This survey provides you an opportunity to include your ideas and input in the development of the central library. 
The survey consists of 26 questions, with a free-form write-in option at the end of the survey for you to provide additional input. Please provide responses to as many of the questions as you can! Your feedback is important to guide the appropriate development of a central library.

We appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey!

Due Date
