National defense is an arm of the government whose mandate is to maintain peace through guarding thestate from both external and internal conflicts and it’s the most important part of the government.

This means investment programs in the defense department will be disrupted and with time it will cost the tax payer more to rectify contract breaches, to raise unit cost and delay delivery of important equipment.

The defense will be unable to accomplish some mission (Bennett, 2013).
