INSA and seven other industry associations wrote to House and Senate Armed Services Committee leaders to promote legislation that would improve and strengthen the National Security Innovation and Industrial Base (NSIB) in the FY2023 National Defense Authorization.
The proposals supported by INSA would take steps to address key challenges to the National Security Innovation and Industrial Base, including:
- Recruiting and retaining a STEM industrial base workforce;
- Training and educating the future NSIB workforce;
- Strengthening the government acquisition workforce; and
- Bolstering the federal government’s ability to recruit and retain private industry, including small businesses.
