Report
The Defense Industry Initiative
on Business Ethics and Conduct
An Overview
Promoting a culture of ethical conduct
within the defense industry
The Background
• In 1985, defense acquisition at height of the Cold war
– allegations of criminal misconduct and government mismanagement in
defense contracting
– “Ill Wind” influence peddling scandal was the (unfortunate) poster child
• President Reagan appointed the Packard Commission, or “The
President’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Defense Management,” to
recommend reforms
• The Packard Commission, February 1986 Interim Report
– waste, fraud and abuse had eroded the public’s confidence in the defense
industry and the Defense Department.
– The Commission urged defense contractors to improve the defense acquisition
process through greater self-governance
From the Report
“To assure that their houses are in order, defense
contractors must promulgate and vigilantly enforce codes
of ethics that address the unique problems and
procedures incident to defense procurement.”
“They must also develop and implement internal controls
to monitor these codes of ethics and sensitive aspects of
contract compliance.”
The Response
• Jack Welch of General Electric and the CEOs and senior
officials of 17 other defense contractors voluntarily met
• Created the Defense Industry Initiative on Business Ethics and
Conduct.
• drafted the principles that became central to the DII.
• These principles first appeared in the Appendix to the Packard
Commission's June 1986 final report
• By July 1986, 32 major defense contractors had pledged to
adopt DII’s core principles.
Original DII Principles
• Have and adhere to written Codes of Conduct;
• Train employees in those Codes;
• Encourage internal reporting of violations of the Code, within an
atmosphere free of fear of retribution;
• Practice self-governance through the implementation of systems to
monitor compliance with federal procurement laws and the adoption of
procedures for voluntary disclosure of violations to the appropriate
authorities;
• Share with other firms their best practices in implementing the principles,
and participate annually in “Best Practices Forums”; and
• Be accountable to the public.
