Abstract:

This thesis documents a study of Air Force financial management options and management implications of the use of outlay controls in the U.S. government budget. It explores the possible range of outlay controls that might be instituted, examines constraints on the Air Force in trying to manage programs within such controls, and suggests courses of action and an overall management strategy for effectively coping with outlay controls should they be imposed. It identifies three steps that would have to be taken in preparation for the institution of outlay controls 1 Initiate work to bring outlay planning considerations into the program planning and budgeting process including improved forecasting and tracking methods 2 identify intra-year adjustment measures and their effects, and establish a priority list for them and 3 establish a central authority for deciding when to implement intra-year adjustment measures and which specific measures to use.
