Global Market Trends and Non-Notified CFIUS Cases

The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) plays a vital role in reviewing potential problems related to foreign investment in U.S. companies. Industrial Policy reviews global market activity in the defense sector to determine if there are any potential impacts to the U.S. defense industrial base. These findings are used to determine whether a CFIUS review is warranted.

Primary activities include:

  • Offering a robust review process for global market activities
  • Preparing weekly newsletter outlining global market activities of interest to disseminate to government stakeholders
  • Working with the Department of Defense (DoD) and other government agencies to ascertain whether activity should be reviewed and referred to CFIUS


  • Industrial Policy is currently revising DoD 2000.25 Department of Defense (DoD) Procedures for Reviewing and Monitoring Transactions Filed with CFIUS (current instructions can be found here).
  • Annual reports pertaining to past CFIUS cases can be viewed at the Department of Treasury website. Read more.
