Abstract:

CINC participation in the DoD Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System has recently been increased, but whether CINCs can influence their programs remains at question. Following a review of the historical evolution of PPBS, the author describes the participants from the Military Departments and the OSD staff, to Congressional committees. Then the entire process is reviewed in sequential steps with emphasis on what needs to be done by CINC staffs to influence the outcome of their programs. It is structured to provide a background knowledge to the staff action officers working PPBS related activities for the CINC. Four specific recommendations are presented to assist the CINC staffs in setting up the environment to influence the Planning, Programming and Budgeting System.
