Abstract:

Resource managers throughout the Defense Department are required to develop and package the resource requirements for their commands. This process must evaluate many differing proposals and determine those that will compete successfully for limited resources at the next higher headquarters. This constrained environment also results in the closest of scrutiny at all levels to insure the requirements meet the needs of the Defense Department. A methodology is provided which is intuitively and mathematically acceptable that will offer the resource manager a way of packaging and presenting these resource requirements. It is oriented on the goals and objectives of the organization and its higher organization. A weighting process that evaluates the contribution of each initiative to these goals in such a manner that they can be defended under the closest of scrutiny is offered. The methodology is oriented on the Program Analysis and Resource Review PARR Program Objective Memorandum POM process but is also applicable to the budget execution process. Author
