Thank you to the October Manufacturing Division Meeting Event Sponsor:
Today’s defense supply chains include many commercial and “dual-use” suppliers who are essential to both national security and economic security. Many of these common challenges between the commercial and defense supply chains fall outside of the authority of the DoD.
This means there needs to be a whole-of-government approach to achieve a set of manufacturing policies & purchasing practices that will unleash commercial enterprise, to ensure both economic and national security
The NDIA Manufacturing Division is mobilizing a coalition of advisors for a round-table discussion to talk about solutions. Our objective is to define actions that lead to a whole-of-government approach to achieve a set of manufacturing policies & purchasing practices that will unleash commercial enterprise, to ensure both economic and national security.
We look forward to your thoughtful participation.

Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together - both at formal association membership, board, committee, and other meetings and in informal contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
