Needs and Uses: As part of its industrial base oversight responsibilities, DoD is planning to assess in a preliminary way the impact on the U.S. industrial base of the increasing foreign ownership of U.S. defense-relevant firms. Specifically, DoD will evaluate the extent to which foreign acquired firms (1) expanded domestically vs. off-shored production and R&D capabilities; and (2) remained reliable suppliers to defense customers. This assessment is limited to a sample of firms that were DoD suppliers when they were foreign-acquired in 2003 or 2004 and that the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology & Logistics determined at that time possessed defense critical technology under development.
Affected Public: Business or other-for-profit.
