DoD Seeks OMB Approval to Collect Defense Industrial Base Information

The Defense Department seeks Office of Management and Budget approval DoD’s plan to collect information as part of an ongoing defense industrial base review.

DoD said Thursday in a Federal Register notice that the proposed survey is urgent and will help the department identify, evaluate and issue recommendations to boost the defense industrial base.

President Donald Trump called for a cross-government review of U.S. companies’ capacity to support the defense industrial base through an executive order issued July.

DoD plans to collect voluntary responses from 300 individuals within businesses and other for-profit organizations.

The department will accept comments on the proposed information collection effort through Nov. 27.
