Abstract : As a result of reductions in Defense procurement, product managers face the risk that the Department of Defense will lose a particular supplier or a particular capability. Companies may report that they are considering leaving a line of business, or may no longer provide a product or service to the Department of Defense. They may request that the Department of Defense maintain a particular level of production or size of contract, regardless of our present requirements. Since any of these actions involve use of limited Defense resources, the Department must make considered, critical judgments before acting. This Hand- book was developed to help evaluate these situations. It provides a framework and guidelines to evaluate the need for DoD action to preserve defense industrial capabilities.
