HUNTSVILLE, Alabama, September 26, 2017— SCI Technology, a Sanmina company, strengthened its ties to the U.S. Army Logistics community on Friday when it hosted 30 students from the Civilian Logistics Career Management Office’s (CLCMO) Senior Logistician Advanced Course (SLAC) at the University of Alabama-Huntsville (UAH).
Civilian logisticians play a vital role in the Army’s global supply chain, supporting Sustainable Army Readiness by creating and implementing logistics policies, programs and plans. This event provided SLAC students with a chance to leverage Sanmina’s expertise in supply chain operations, as well as SCI’s extensive experience with Department of Defense (DoD) manufacturing.
CLCMO provides life-cycle career management services to Department of the Army (DA) civilians seeking strategic professional development and growth, and partnered with Professional Development Solutions at UAH to conduct this program. SLAC is UAH’s new two-week learning event aimed at closing competency gaps and providing education and networking opportunities to senior DA civilian logisticians (GS-14/GS-15 level) from major commands throughout the Army.
“Hosting these students helps SCI build stronger relationships with the men and women responsible for supporting the Army’s supply chain,” SCI President Mike Underwood said. “Civilians perform crucial duties in support of our Armed Forces, and SCI is proud to assist them in the development of their careers.”
SLAC’s visit included facility tours and a roundtable session with SCI’s leadership team. This roundtable involved topics highly relevant to a logistician’s work including supply chain, manufacturing, contracts, program management, depot and test services, and quality control.
