WASHINGTON HEADQUARTERS SERVICES (DOD) DC DIRECTORATE FOR INFORMATION OPERATIONS AND REPORTS
Pagination or Media Count:
The report provides projections of direct and indirect or defense-related purchases from fifty major manufacturing industries, and estimates of direct and indirect defense spending in each state. An Introduction provides a brief overview of the definitions, budgetary concepts, and expenditure categories used in developing the estimates, and offers some guidelines for interpreting them. The tabular material is divided into three sections Summary Tables Projections for Selected Industries and Individual State Projections. Direct defense expenditures, are the expenditures that the Department of Defense DoD itself makes. These include purchases of goods and services, as well as military an civilian pay. Indirect or defense-related expenditures, in contrast, represent purchases--generated throughout the economy--of items used to produce goods bought by DoD. That is, they reflect the purchases of materials, tools, and parts that prime contractors make from their suppliers in order to perform the work for which DoD has contracted. Those sales, in turn, trigger subsequent rounds of transactions, as subcontractors purchase goods and services from their major suppliers and those firms place orders with companies at lower tiers of the production chain. It is to this sequence of purchases--of goods and services from subcontractors and lower-tier suppliers--that the term indirect defense purchases applies.
