Boardwalktech awarded contract for DLA supply chain visibility
Boardwalk Digital Ledger selected for U.S. Government R&D project to ensure Food Safety
CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 21, 2020 /CNW/ - (TSXV: BWLK) (OTCQB: BWLKF) Boardwalktech Software Corp ("Boardwalktech"), the leading Digital Ledger platform and enterprise software applications company, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Research & Development (R&D) subcontract to use Boardwalk's Digital Ledger solution. This R&D project examines how digital ledger technology can be used to address more effective and efficient ways to ensure food safety and prevent food contamination to U.S. military and officials stationed overseas. The project will be based on the Boardwalk Digital Ledger to improve the visibility and security of the DLA food product shipments by Subsistence Prime Vendors and other stakeholders to the final Military Service customer. The Boardwalk Digital Ledger platform will enable all subsistence supply chain participants to engage in more dynamic and efficient exchanges of information beyond what is typically shared during the execution of DLA supply and prime vendor contracts.
By selecting the Boardwalk Digital Ledger platform to enable this vital process, the DLA can address the long-term data trust, multi-party alignment, and predictive learning needs of the DLA R&D Subsistence program. Through this technology application demonstration, the DLA will utilize the track & trace capabilities of the Boardwalk Digital Ledger to address food safety and defense issues, and other traceability concerns, while executing its subsistence mission of supporting the military and their families worldwide. This project also provides an opportunity for the DLA and other government agencies to test a real-world application of blockchain's immutability capabilities. This technology may potentially be applied to future DLA programs that require trusted exchanges between multiple parties.
Under the terms of the awarded contract, Boardwalktech will deliver services as a subcontractor to Bättra, Inc., a veteran owned small business that has been engaged with the DLA for over a decade in supply chain and other related areas.
"We are excited to work with our partner Bättra on this vital project for the DLA," said Andrew Duncan, Boardwalktech CEO. "Our Boardwalk Digital Ledger is ideally suited for managing the granular, time-based, collaborative data exchanges needed for supplier visibility projects like this one for SPV's feeding our troops. In addition, the DLA will also develop a rich dataset of interactions between all parties which can support the predictive insights needed to make better decisions, faster."
