Congressional Interests and Reports
The Deputy Assistant Secretary for Manufacturing and Industrial Base Policy (MIBP) supports Congress’ interest in the health and viability of the defense industrial base (DIB) as it relates to national security objectives. MIBP provides reports, conducts meetings, and shares assessments with Congress in an effort to inform legislation and policy related to the DIB.
Since 1994, MIBP’s Annual Report to Congress (required by Title 10, U.S.C., section 2504) summarizes the Department’s industrial capabilities-related guidance, assessments, and mitigation actions. MIBP also provides one-time reports to Congress on specific issues and conducts in-person interfaces such as staff briefings, testimony, and letters.

Please note: Each report summarizes DoD industrial capabilities-related guidance, assessments and actions initiated during the prior year and as they existed at the close of that year. It is important to note the status of some of the programs described in each report has changed in the intervening time.
If you are interested in any of MIBP’s reports, have an industrial base issue you believe the Department should be aware of, or would like to schedule a meeting with our subject matter experts, please contact Robert Read.
