DOD contractors invest pension assets more conservatively

Pension investment allocations of Department of Defense contractors are more conservative than those of a peer group of companies, according to new research.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office, Washington, D.C., publishes this finding in a study, “Pension Costs on DOD Contracts: Additional Guidance Needed to Ensure Costs are Consistent and Reasonable.” The GAO report finds that the tax-qualified define benefit plans of the largest DOD contractors invest in similar types of pension plan assets as their peer group, but do so more conservatively.
