To enhance operational efficiency in fulfillment of its mission, the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) establishes and maintains commercial arrangements with a variety of vendors, contractors and other for-profit private sector entities. Undertakings of this nature are conducted in full compliance with applicable Federal laws and regulations and Departmental policy. Although a number of companies cite or imply an association with DDTC as a part of their efforts to market their goods and services, no commercial firm can legitimately claim to enjoy a "special" relationship with DDTC. While we may have a contractual relationship, this is accomplished in accordance with the contracting and procurement rules and each party's rights and obligations are under the particular contract or official procurement arrangement. DDTC use of any particular commercial product or service does not constitute a DDTC or U.S. Government endorsement.
