This thesis evaluates the adequacy of the financial management and budgeting training provided to ground supply officers in the United States Marine Corps. Data, based on the responses to a questionnaire, were compiled to summarized the perspective of operating unit supply officers regarding their financial managementbudgeting training. This information is contrasted with data obtained during interviews with selected financial managers in the operating forces regarding their views on the performance levels of supply officers relative to their financial and budgeting duties. The author concludes that the current financial training is not adequate considering the scope of a supply officers duties at the operating unit level. The author recommends that the training be expanded to approximately twice its current instruction length and include practical application exercises and that professional financial managers, not supply personnel, conducte the financialbudgeting instruction at the ground supply officers course.
