DoD IG to Evaluate Foreign Influence on Pentagon’s R&D Programs

1 min read

The Department of Defense’s office of inspector general announced plans to kick off a review in January to determine whether the office of the defense undersecretary for research and engineering tracks and mitigate foreign entities’ influence on DoD’s research and development initiatives.

A Jan. 6 memo says the OIG will conduct the evaluation at several components and agencies under OUSD(R&E).

Those agencies include the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Defense Innovation Unit, selected federally funded research and development centers, Missile Defense Agency and the office of the defense undersecretary for intelligence.

“We may identify additional locations during the evaluation,” the OIG notice states.
