Frank Kendall, the Defense Department‘s top acquisition official, told an audience at an industry forum Mondayin Arlington, Va. that small businesses will suffer significant effects resulting from sequestration, the American Forces Press Service reports.

Nick Simeone writes Kendall, undersecretary for acquisition, technology and logistics, said he is also worried over cuts to the department’s research and development budget.

Kendall told the Navy Opportunity Forum the department considered a scenario in its strategic choices and management review, where it would have to cut $50 billion per year under the sequester.

“That would be pretty devastating,” he said, according to AFPS.The review is set to conclude soon, Kendall said.
