PNDC partners with Northwest elected officials to streamline and strengthen federal procurement processes to improve long-term return on investment in defense and security contracts.  We support reforms that increase fairness and consistency, improve access by contractors of all sizes, and strengthen Northwest contractors who deliver high quality products and services.

PNDC's Advocacy Committee invites all members to join our series of roundtable discussions with U.S. Representatives and Senators to make sure Congress and federal agencies are addressing the unique needs of Northwest defense and security businesses. This is an exclusive opportunity to address elected officials in a small group discussion. Make your voice is heard on issues that are important to your business and support the PNDC Advocacy Agenda.
