Abstract:

The Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System imposed on the Department of Defense over thirteen years ago by Secretary of Defense McNamara is still a major factor in defense planning although it has undergone evolutionary changes as leadership style and emphasis within the various administration have changed. The study bridges the gap between DOD and its PPBS through Department of the Army to Army Materiel Command. The paper provides an overview of DA and AMC policies, procedures, and techniques utilized in order to comply with the demanding requirements of PPBS and to interface effectively with it. The emphasis is on regulatory, administrative, and procedural aspects of the AMC PPBS and evolving budgeting trends.
