Industry Issues

Acquisition Reform

AIA plays a preeminent role in representing the aerospace and defense industry in all facets of the Department of Defense’s acquisition process. During this time of tight defense budgets, it is imperative that industry actively engage with Congress, the Pentagon, and the White House to streamline processes and reduce unnecessary costs to ensure that the defense industrial base remains viable and vibrant.

This effort is being led by the Councils, Committees and Working Groups in AIA’s National Security and Acquisition Policy division together with the Washington Procurement Committee in AIA’s Legislative Division. For additional information, please contact us at
