The military bill of goods in an interindustry model is a statement of military requirements for material and services from the civilan economy, in terms that are compatible with the industry definitions in the model. The RAC bill of goods presents the percentage distribution of DOD procurement in terms of the 4-digit Standard Industrial Classification code--the same classification system used to define the industry sectors in current interindustry economic models. For conversion to dollar terms the percentages are to be applied to an estimate of DOD procurement expenditures, adjusted for differences between DOD accounting definitions and national income accounting concepts, being developed by the Office of Business Economics, Department of Commerce. The work was sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Analysis Economics agencies involved in interindustry economic studies and to which the estimates have been made available are the Division of Economic Growth, Bureau of Labor Statistics the Office of Emergency Planning and the Office of Business Economics, Department of Commerce.
