The Defense Budget and Industry: Looking Beyond the Budget Caps

December 2, 2015 • 9:00 – 10:30 am EST
This event focused on the implications of the budget caps on the defense industrial base and what the future of funding and competition will look like. With today’s constrained and unpredictable budget environment, DoD must take into account the effects on firms and how to best support them during these times. How do the effects of lower revenues, pressures on lower tier suppliers, and government disinvestment accumulate over time?  How is the structure of the industry likely to change in reaction to these challenges?
