Shake-Up at the Department of Defense Industrial Policy Office 

The Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment’s (USD A&S) Office of Industrial Policy has gone through several key leadership changes in the past two months. Under its new name, the Office of Industrial Base Policy, will now be led by an Assistant Secretary, granting more authority and jurisdiction under the Department of Defense hierarchy than the former Deputy Assistant Secretary title held by Jesse Salazar. In addition to this leadership shift, several other changes within the Office of Industrial Base Policy have occurred amongst key secretarial and directorate leadership positions.
