A Statement of Task An ad hoc committee will convene a 2-day public workshop to discuss the i ssues around and potential solutions to: 1. DOD materials shortages/price instabilities (for materials such as rare earth elements, rhenium, and carbon fiber); 2. Parts obsolescence; 3. Part/component certification; 4. Domestic (DOD industrial base) processing and manufacturing capabili- ties; and 5. Identification of future issues. The workshop might also consider additional topics close to and in line with the five mentioned above. The workshop will use a mix of individual presenta- tions, panels, breakout discussions, and question-and-answer sessions to develop an understanding of the relevant issues. Key stakeholders would be identified and invited to participate. Approximately 10-12 speakers will make presentations. An individually authored Workshop Summary document will be prepared by a desig nated rapporteur. 65
