Missile defense contractors to pay for faulty parts
Friday - 1/6/2012, 10:29am EST
A new "Contractor Accountability For Quality" clause will be included in the Missile Defense Agency's contract for ground-based missile defense development and sustainment, Bloomberg reports.
The move is meant to help reduce the number of defective parts that have caused failures and delays in pricey projects.
Cristina Chaplain, director of Acquisition and Sourcing Management at the Government Accountability Office and follows the Defense Missile Agency, joined The Federal Drive with Tom Temin with more on what this move means.
