Assessing & Managing Risk
Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)
DTSA evaluates the potential impact of foreign acquisitions of U.S. companies, reviewed by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), for military-related equities that could have an impact to national security. DTSA served as the DoD lead agency for CFIUS until FY 2012, at which time the Office of Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (AT&L) assumed responsibility for providing the Department’s input to the Department of the Treasury on all CFIUS-related matters.
DTSA works closely with AT&L to develop appropriate mitigation measures to prevent unauthorized access by foreign entities to critical military technology and expertise. DTSA works with the Departments of Commerce and State to ensure that foreign-acquired companies will continue to comply with export control requirements to protect America’s technological advantage.
