Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM)
Location: Chantilly, VA

As part of the Mission Assurance team you will be responsible for supporting and advising on both space and ground systems throughout the contracts process through standards development, into design.  Responsibilities also include ensuring analysis and feedback of operational data is provided to programs through various working groups and targeted alerts, as needed.  You will interface with senior members of program offices, directorate and offices, as well as operators at various ground stations as Mission Assurance responsibilities span the entire engineering lifecycle.  Mission Assurance supports multiple Mission Threads and provides horizontal cross-mission capabilities and integration.

SCRM is a systematic process for managing supply chain risk by identifying susceptibilities, vulnerabilities and threats throughout the “Department of Defense’s “supply chain” and developing mitigation strategies to combat those threats whether presented by the supplier, the supplied product and its subcomponents, or the supply chain.

Key Responsibilities Include:

  • Develop and implement a common operating anomaly tracking, attribution, process and tools to collect and manage data related to on-orbit anomalies
  • Analysis of trends in anomaly root cause analysis that potentially affect other programs
  • Publish best practices to avoid and manage anomalies in the future
  • Organize and conduct periodic anomaly related conferences and deliver summary reports to the customer
  • Outline, propose, and track mitigation activities such as revisions to standards, or specialized technical studies.



  • Ability to obtain an active TS//SCI with polygraph security clearance
  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science, mathematics, or a related technical discipline
  • Technical knowledge of spacecraft components, ground architecture hardware, and software
  • Technical knowledge of Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) (spacecraft components, ground architecture hardware, and software)
