Senator Elizabeth Warren is pressing the Pentagon’s top acquisition official to give data to back up his promise to consider defense-industry requests to adjust some already signed contracts for inflation.

Companies that ask for revisions to fixed-price contracts “must meet stringent criteria” and provide pricing data that justifies the change, Warren wrote Pentagon Acquisition and Sustainment Undersecretary William LaPlante on Wednesday.
