The purpose of the United Launch Alliance (ULA) Industry Day is to inform industry of the Federal Trade Commission's Consent Order regarding ULA and the role of the Compliance Officer to oversee compliance with the Consent Order. The Order is intended to ensure that ULA affords all satellite manufacturers non-discriminatory treatment for launch services and that Lockheed and Boeing, as satellite manufacturers, consider all qualified launch vehicle providers on a non-discriminatory basis. The order also requires firewalls to prevent information from a satellite or other launch vehicle provider from being shared by ULA with its Boeing or Lockheed Martin parent. The role of the Compliance Officer is to oversee compliance with the Consent Order by all three respondents and to investigate any complaint or representation arising in relation to or connected with compliance of this order.
