ABSTRACT
The article presents a study done by the U.S. Accountability Office (GAO) which reviews the efforts of the Department of Defense (DOD) in assessing the availability of suppliers for defense needs. DOD admits that supplier-base availability has limitations due to the difficulty in predicting technologies. However, DOD plans to incorporate industrial-base considerations in its 2010 Quadrennial Defense Review to increase awareness of supplier-base availability for defense needs.
