Specifically, DoD will evaluate the extent to which foreign acquired firms (1) expanded domestically vs. off-shored production and R&D capabilities; and (2) remained reliable suppliers to defense customers. This assessment is limited to a sample of firms that were DoD suppliers when they were foreign-acquired acquired in 2003 or 2004 and that the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology & Logistics determined at that time possessed defense critical technology under development. Affected Public: Business or other for profit. Annual Burden Hours: 430 hours. Number of Respondents: 86. Responses Per Respondent: 1. Average Burden Per Response: 5 hours. Frequency: One-time.

As part of its industrial base oversight responsibilities, DoD is planning to assess in a preliminary way the impact on the U.S. industrial base of the increasing foreign ownership of U.S. defense-relevant firms. DoD will use the information collected to assess the extent to which the foreign-acquired sample of U.S. firms expanded U.S. facilities and/or off-shored them and whether they remained reliable suppliers to their defense agency customers. For the sample of firms surveyed, this assessment will attempt to address: (a) Growth or contraction in the firm size (measured in sales, capacity utilization, employment and production facility size) since being foreign acquired and the extent to which product lines are still produced in the U.S.; (b) Growth or contraction in R&D since being foreign acquired and the extent to which R&D is still performed primarily in the U.S.; (c) Growth or contraction in number of defense contracts and whether any such contracts were terminated and why; (d) Decisions not to participate in any defense-related contract competitions since being foreign-acquired and why.
