The Defense Production Act of 1950 (DPA, 50 U.S.C. Appx § 2061 et seq.) confers upon the President a broad set of authorities to influence domestic industry in the interest of national defense. These authorities are primarily used by the Department of Defense (DOD) to enhance and support U.S. military preparedness and capabilities. They are also used across the federal government to improve domestic preparedness, response, and recovery from natural hazards, terrorist attacks, and other national emergencies.
