Abstract:

The purpose of the Profit Policy Study is to determine defense contractors profit on both defense and non-defense business and to examine the relation of earnings to capital investment in assets designed to increase productivity and lower costs. The study will recommend to the Secretary of Defense any changes in Department of Defense profit policy required to strengthen the competitive industrial base and reduce the cost of systems and hardware essential to U.S. national security. If it is determined that a change in DoD profit policy is in the national interest, a new profit policy will be promulgated along with the directives necessary for implementation.
