- Full Report:
The Special Priorities Assistance Program was designed to insure that businesses and industry accept and fill defense-related orders ahead of commercial orders in periods of mobilization readiness.
The Program: (1) did not work when needed; (2) was used where it did not apply; (3) lacked enforcement; and (4) may not function effectively as a mobilization mechanism when and if the need arises.
