Abstract:

The Defense Conversion Commission, as part of its study of the effects of reduced defense spending on the economy, requested comments from defense firms and associations. This report summarizes the industry responses on the effect of DoD spending reductions on those firms business bases, employment, their strategies, and barriers related to transitioning to commercial markets. Barriers frequently mentioned include specialized Government accounting rules, redundant oversight, burdensome regulatory requirements, and tax policies that do not reward investment.
