Abstract:

The DoD Programming System was introduced in 1961-62 by Secretary McNamara to integrate the planning programming budgeting phases of Defense decision-making. This report is an explanation of how the System operates and an evaluation of it, using as a standard basic management principles. This System provides for planning and programming to be conducted on a mission oriented basis and for the overall review of the Services programs. It is a more effective method of Defense management than was previously used. Current problems with the DoD Programming System however have caused OSD to be pre- occupied with detailed management of short- and mid-range goals to the detriment of long-range planning and general policy guidance.
