Report: Trump Administration Halts Defense Industrial Base Survey Plans

1 min read

The Trump administration has halted plans to survey multiple U.S. contractors that would have been part of a broader defense industrial base review, Defense News reported Wednesday.

The report said the U.S. government now intends to use information that federal agencies already gather instead of seeking proprietary data from defense companies to identify market gaps and weaknesses.

Adam Stump, a Pentagon spokesperson, was quoted as saying by Defense News that the poll may still occur under the second phase of the cross-government data collection initiative.

The decision stems from the challenge of drafting a non-invasive questionnaire and obtaining approval from the Office of Management and Budget, the report noted.
