Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed title III of the Defense Production Act, focusing on the: (1) extent and nature of foreign involvement in the title III program, Department of Defense (DOD) oversight of such involvement, and its impact on effectiveness; and (2) adequacy of DOD efforts to qualify materials for defense weapon systems. GAO found that: (1) four of the six title III projects have some foreign involvement; (2) the impact of foreign involvement on the title III program is difficult to assess since most projects are incomplete, and none of the materials produced are actually being used in a weapon system; (3) most of the title III contracts are not classified, which results in reduced requirements for DOD review, oversight, and approval of foreign involvement in these projects; (4) weapon system qualification is difficult due to defense downsizing, budget cuts, and the reduced military threat; and (5) five of the six projects have met the title III material qualification standards, but none of the materials has completed design-allowable testing.
