Abstract:

The report concerns the Air Force Budget System from formulation through justification and education. In formulation, the budget is taken from the budget call or submission of estimates until submission by the Air Force of the Budget to OSD. Program Objective Memorandum POM preparation is included because of its important role in Budget preparation and justification. From Formulation comes the next step of justification, which involves OSD and OMB reviews, Presidential submittal and Congressional hearings. After approval of the Budget, the funds are allocated by OMB, allotted by the Military Services to their field units for obligation, commitment and expenditure. The reporting process back up to the chain of command is also covered to a minor degree.
