Government Policy


The mission of the Government Policy Department is to ensure the continued existence of a viable, competitive national technology and industrial base, strengthening the government-industry partnership through dialogue, and providing interaction between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. Government Policy entails three primary roles:

* Advocacy

* Information/Education

* Interactive Communication/Dialogue

NDIA's Government Policy Department works to ensure a viable defense industrial base, adequate defense budget, acquisition reform, and promotion of business opportunities. The Department is comprised of three Divisions, which are overseen by NDIA's Vice President for Government Policy:

* Government Policy Advisory Division

* Legislative Information Division

* Procurement Division

LEGISLATIVE INFORMATION DIVISION

The Legislative Information Division (LID) identifies items of legislative information in the areas of interest to the NDIA membership, and monitors defense-related legislation and policy, thereby selecting major interest areas for highlighting to the NDIA leadership. LID also works with individual staff members of congressional committees who seek information and opinions falling within NDIA's province. The Division contributes to the successful execution of the policy approved by the Executive Committee, which permits NDIA to take positions on broad policy issues and legislative matters of interest and concern to Association members. The primary substantive approach to legislative activity on the part of the Association is through written comments and testimony before the relevant committees of Congress.

The LID invites members of Congress and staff, senior Department of Defense representatives, defense industry executives and outside defense experts to participate in roundtable discussions about the current status of the defense industry, proposed legislation, regulations and policies.
