Abstract:

Over the past decade, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) has been analyzing and reporting on contract spending for national security and across the federal government. This presentation analyzes contracting for products, services, and research and development (R&D) by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and its key components. It provides an in-depth look at the trends currently driving nearly 70% of all federal contract dollars throughout the growth and subsequent inflection of defense spending of the 2000
