Budgetary Challenges Impacts on Defense Programs

The recurring cycle of continuing resolutions and budgetary uncertainty create significant turbulence for both company executives and government program managers.  The start of defense programs can be delayed, development programs can be disrupted, and the sustainment of critical capabilities can be significantly impacted.  Beyond these near-term impacts, the cyclical nature of defense spending over time has led to repeated boom or bust periods that also lead to increased inefficiencies and cost in the development and delivery of defense programs.


This latter issue is the subject of George Mason University's Center for Government Contracting White Paper, The Cost of Saving Money, which will be released in advance of this panel.  We are excited to have a panel of senior level government officials, industry executives, and academic experts to discuss this topic.  Please join us for this important discussion!
