Northwest Defense is the official voice of the Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition (PNDC) in the blogosphere. We’re a group of DoD and Security contractors in the Pacific Northwest, and we’re doing our level best to make sure that the contracting community out here gets what it needs to thrive. The commentary on this site is intended to inform without too much pretense. If you’re looking for insider secrets, you probably made a wrong turn at Albuquerque. If you’re looking for the occasional thoughtful analysis of issues affecting the industry, then we’ll do our best.
