Competition, Cooperation Among Defense Contractors: BGOV Insight

"If a critical supplier of some niche capability goes out of business because of lost work, the ripple effects might be felt across the industry. In this world of decreased spending, the big five must tend not only to their own financial health, but also to the health of their supply chain. Suppliers need to remain nimble and work to solidify relationships with multiple primes."

The Pentagon spends about a billion dollars a year on satellite communications services from commercial vendors, which supply about 80 percent of the military’s demand. 

The industry is worried, however, about the future of its Defense Department business, for several reasons.

Members can provide data and input at the following link: http://www.ndia.org/industrialbase/

The National Defense Industrial Association has launched a new initiative to identify issues of concern in the nation's defense supplier base. Led by NDIA Senior Fellow Brett Lambert — who recently served as the Defense Department's director of industrial policy — the effort will mirror, to the extent possible, the sector-by-sector, tier-by-tier study of the industrial base that Lambert spearheaded at DoD.

Members can provide data and input at the following link: http://www.ndia.org/industrialbase/

The goal is to "provide actionable, fact-based data to DoD about critical and fragile industrial base suppliers," Lambert said.

NDIA is looking for a mix of perspectives on the industrial base from large, medium and small companies from both the defense and commercial industries that support national security.
Over the coming months, based on participants' input, NDIA will identify targeted areas of potential concern in each sector and provide overarching recommendations that could benefit the entire base and the Defense Department. The intent is to recommend potential remedies unique to the sectors and tiers that could be broadly applied using existing authorities and vehicles.

The goal is to draft an initial report and findings for review by NDIA peer group in June, and share findings with the Defense Department later this summer.

All NDIA members can offer important input as the Defense Department attempts to address industrial base vulnerabilities over the coming years. Members can provide data and input at the following link: http://www.ndia.org/industrialbase/

The webpage includes a fillable form of questions dealing with the specifics of an industrial base vulnerability. NDIA staff will review and acknowledge all inputs. These inputs will be aggregated and will be reviewed only by NDIA staff.

Participants may be contacted for further details and fact-finding. All information provided through the form will be treated confidentially by NDIA. No company-specific data will be shared outside the organization without the express written permission of the firm submitting the information.

Our latest podcast is now live. In it, we look at China's navy, cuts to the littoral combat ship fleet and how mine-resistant, ambush protected vehicles are being used by law enforcement agencies.
