A
Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee will convene a 2-day public workshop to discuss the issues 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 capabilities; 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 presentations, 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 designated rapporteur.
