Did You Know?

A bill of materials (BOM) for a SCADA rack system (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) may include more than 70 components and subassemblies sourced from six countries of origin through multiple distributors and vendors. Foxguard’s engineering, sourcing, and compliance teams ensure components meet all requirements including export and regulatory, need for a license to export, and a Harmonized Tariff Schedules (HTS).  

In addition, due diligence is required to ensure that: 

  • Items do not come from or ship to embargoed or sanctioned countries or restricted individuals. 
  • Raw materials (minerals) in all components are not sourced in a conflict region. 


Global Supply Chain and Government Regulations

Executive Orders, National Security, and the Supply Chain

Executive Orders of the U.S. prohibit certain companies as a source of supply. This prohibition must also flow to OEM tier 1 and tier 1 sub-suppliers.
Examples of relevant Executive Orders for Foxguard products include:

  • Executive Order 14017 proposes eight recommendations to mitigate risk and strengthen supply chain resiliency.
  • Executive Order 13873 addresses securing the nation’s information and communications technology (ICT) supply chain relative to foreign adversaries.
  • Executive Order 13920 prohibits the installation of Bulk-Power System (BPS) equipment related to any foreign adversary, establishes pre-qualified equipment and vendors, and identifies and replaces now prohibited BPS equipment already in use.

When the End-User Is the Government

The following government requirements impact the supply chain if the end-user is the U.S. Government (not for commercial sale): 

  • Trade Agreements Act (TAA): Companies who obtain a General Services Administration GSA contract to sell to the Government are bound by the TAA, requiring products to be “substantially transformed” in the United States or a TAA-designated country.  
  • Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS): A set of restrictions to protect the U.S. defense industry from vulnerabilities associated with foreign sources of supply. Specific clauses are flowed down via contracts to the systems integrator 
  • Defense Priorities and Allocations System (DPAS): DPAS-rated orders require preferential acceptance prioritization and scheduling orders to meet required delivery dates for items a company typically supplies.
