SRMC Director Selected to Lead National Supply Chain Program’s Development
AIKEN, S.C. (January 4, 2023) — A leader from Savannah River Mission Completion (SRMC) has been selected to play a key role for a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) strategic sourcing program.
Doug McCrary, SRMC’s director of Supply Chain Management, was chosen as chair of the Supply Chain Management Center’s (SCMC) Site Advisory Committee (SAC). The SCMC is a strategic supply chain program dedicated to simplifying the buying process to enable savings for prime contractors of the DOE Office of Environmental Management and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). The group works collaboratively to develop commodity agreements that can be used by multiple sites, achieving integration, leveraging spending, and reducing overall acquisition costs.
The SCMC SAC is composed of supply chain leaders from 23 sites, labs, and projects across the DOE who provide advice and guidance to SCMC leadership.
McCrary was selected to lead this group based on his extensive experience and knowledge of DOE requirements at various sites across the country.
Most recently, McCrary provided strategic guidance in developing the agenda for the SCMC’s annual Fall Meeting and Supplier Industry Day, which was held in early December in Overland Park, Kansas. More than 250 guests participated, including representatives from 68 SCMC suppliers and 17 NNSA and DOE sites.
“Being chosen for this position is an honor, and I am pleased that my colleagues believe I am the right person for this task,” McCrary said. “This annual meeting brings together representatives who have a common need to purchase and provide specialized materials and services for these sites—including the Savannah River Site. By coming together through SCMC, we can make more informed and more economical purchasing decisions.”
SRMC Chief Administrative Officer Mark Barth said the SAC gains experienced leadership under McCrary, who will serve in the post for two years.
“Savannah River Mission Completion and many other federal contractors benefit by having experienced buyers guiding the activities of the SCMC,” Barth said. “Doug’s participation in this leadership position supports the organization’s efforts to develop a worthwhile program that will help all contractors to be better stewards of federal contract dollars.”
SRMC comprises parent company BWX Technologies, Inc. with partners Amentum and Fluor. Its team brings the capabilities necessary to accelerate cleanup at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site through safe nuclear operations, optimized and integrated mission execution, and strong corporate governance.
