A key component of NDIA’s Government Policy team is the Procurement Division, which monitors and advances sound and practicable procurement/acquisition policies on matters that affect government/industry relationships relating to this important process. This allows government to obtain needed supplies and services at an equitable price with the least possible disruption of industrial practices. The division maintains a close working relationship with government and industry agencies and conducts special studies to provide government with industry perspectives on policies, practices, needs and problems. It also offers members opportunities to sit on industry/government committees. The division also engages in the preparation and filing of amicus curiae briefs before the appeals courts and the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Procurement Division’s goals are:
- To serve as an effective vehicle for the exchange of views and information between government and industry regarding matters of common concern, including maintenance of a strong defense industrial base.
- To foster mutual understanding and effective working relationships between government and industry to ensure the design and production of effective and reliable products and provisions of quality services at reasonable prices.
- To provide government with industry perspectives on government policies, practices, needs and problems within the Procurement Division's purview, conducting special studies as may be required.
