Authorizes the appropriation of $31 million for fiscal year 2023 and $26 million for each of fiscal years 2024 through 2027 for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop and maintain a central database that tracks information critical to securing the U.S. manufacturing supply chain. The bill requires the agency to collect basic company information; an overview of the capabilities, accreditations, and products of companies; and proprietary data; companies would submit that information on a voluntary basis. NIST would administer the central database through its Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) program, connecting state-level databases managed by each MEP center to the central database.
