Long Island Supply Chain Project?

How about a Long Island Supply Chain Project?

Perhaps model it along the lines of Wal-Mart's well regarded model (whatever else we may think of Wal-Mart!).

If they can do it world-wide, why can't we set up a system for all Long Island school districts, municipalities and others which comports with New York State law and which gives preference (where practicable) to "local suppliers."

We can and we should.

We already have some smart folks on Long Island ( here and here among others ) working on these issues.

What is needed, as with many other projects on Long Island are new organizational models and connectivity with other Long Island projects.

The Long Island Congress and Long Island 3.0 projects may help in that regard.
