This study characterizes and synthetizes reports that the US Government Accountability Office (GAO), an independent government watchdog organization, has published on supply chain security (SCS) since 2005. The study follows a systematic and transparent protocol for examining the 25 identified GAO documents. The document review reveals benefits and drawbacks of US SCS policies, initiatives and regulations. The findings allow contrasting of the US government's approach to SCS to the one of the European Commission. This comparison reveals differences and similarities in supply chain security policies both sides of the Atlantic and allows the policy makers to benchmark their approaches to supply chain security. The comparative analysis also paves the road for further EU-US harmonization and mutual recognition of the SCS programs. The study is part of European FP7-Project CORE.
