Defense Science Board Task Force Report FY 1994-99 Future Years Defense Plan
DEFENSE SCIENCE BOARD WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The Panel was specifically tasked to address four areas 1 the Defense Management Report Decision DMRD savings 2 the realism of major weapons cost projections 3 adequacy of OM funding in the FYDP to support planned Defense forces and weapons programs and 4 the adequacy of funding for Defense health care and environmental programs. The Panel was also tasked to identify any significant procurement bow-wave beyond the FYDP period. The initial report of the Task Force, which is attached, covers DMRD, weapons systems, and environmental cost issues, plus the procurement bow-wave question. These issues tie to the 10 billion adjustment made to the Bush FYDP in President Clintons initial budget over the FY94-97 period. We are completing our analyses of the other issues in our tasking and will provide you with our conclusions shortly. The attached report outlines our approach, findings, and recommendations in some detail. This memorandum serves as an Executive Summary and provides selected comments and suggestions related to our task.
