National Defense Authorization Act

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is the annual legislation passed by Congress that authorizes the Department of Defense, including the Department of the Navy, the Marine Corps and the Army. The legislation authorizes key shipbuilding and repair programs and guides major acquisition strategy for the following year.

The Shipbuilders Council of America provides detailed analyses and comparisons of the President’s budget and major Congressional proposals throughout the annual budget process, including the NDAA. We pay particular attention to the adequacy programs that build, repair, modernize and maintain our national security fleet and create detailed authorization comparison tables as the legislation moves through the Congressional process.

Additionally, SCA highlights relevant amendments and key policy provisions that affect the shipbuilding and repair industry.
