Dear Valued Partner,

At OROLIA, our top priorities are the Health and Safety of our employees and those of our business partners, along with ensuring business operations continuity. At this time, we remain operational. To continue to maintain business operations, we have established a Business Continuity Planning Team with an initial focus on Employee Health Protection and Supply Chain Continuity.

OROLIA plays an essential role in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) in the Critical Infrastructure Sector, supporting the critical missions of our customers in the United States, as defined in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During COVID-19 Response and the DHS Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce: Ensuring Community and National Resilience in COVID-19 Response,[1] and further amplified in the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition and Sustainment) Memorandum to the Industrial Base on the DIB Critical Infrastructure Workforce.[2] The U.S. Government has recognized and identified the need to keep the DIB operating and as such, our facilities and businesses remain operational.

Following the guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we have implemented special rules and procedures to protect our employees by communicating health advisories, applying restrictions on travel, requiring employees who are able to work from home to do so, and for employees that must work in an office to abide by precautionary protocols to minimize health risks.

Our Sourcing and Supply Chain team has completed a supply‐chain disruption risk assessment to ensure that our suppliers can continue to serve our needs and provide uninterrupted service by securing materials and products. Currently, our Tier‐1 and Tier‐2 suppliers have adequate materials on hand to avoid disruptions. We are continuously monitoring our supply chain in terms of disruptions to transport of goods as well as manufacturing in order to react as proactively as possible.

We would like to thank you for your confidence in OROLIA and express our full commitment to continuing to support our customers, the DIB, the U.S. Department of Defense, and U.S. Federal Agencies.
