Abstract: This report is the latest in an annual series examining trends in what the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is buying, how the DoD is buying it, and from whom the DoD is buying. Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 proved to be the end of a five-year bounce back in defense contract spending, with contract obligations dropping to $380.1 billion, a 10% decline from FY2020 but still 28% higher than the FY2015 trough. This year’s study focuses on the first year to partially fall under the new administration and examines how present trends align with the newly released National Defense Strategy fact sheet (DoD, 2022). The new administration has maintained a concern with speeding force development and technological adaption that justifies a continued focus on research and development in both contracting and other transaction authority (OTA) agreements. Additionally, this report includes analysis of the topline DoD contracting trends with particular attention to the report on the State of Competition within the Defense Industrial Base.
