Abstract:

This thesis evaluates the Planning Phase of the Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System PPBS used in the Department of Defense DOD. The evaluation includes the evolution of the PPBS and the participants in the Planning Phase used in the DOD budget process. Conclusions drawn are that the Planning Phase of PPBS is the least studied or understood of all the Department of Defense budgeting system phases. Also, public opinion, the intelligence services, and the final budget can cause the National Security Council NSC and the Joint Chiefs of Staff JCS to modify their planning, but the major influence is the NSC and JCS appraisal of the enemy threat and assets needed to ensure national security.
