DEFENSE PRODUCTION ACT (DPA) TITLE III PROGRAM The Defense Production Act Title III Program plays a vital role in creation of world-class domestic production capabilities for a wide range of leading edge technologies. It stimulates investment in key production resources to create, maintain, protect or increase supply, improve quality, and reduce cost of advanced materials and technologies. It can reduce U.S. dependency on foreign sources of supply for critical materials and technologies and strengthen the economic and technological competitiveness of the U.S. industrial base. The Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Manufacturing and Industrial Base Policy, provides management, direction, and oversight of DoD's DPA Title III Program.
