With the current and future manpower reductions, we are required to do more with less. We should focus on streamlining, eliminating duplication and overlap of functions to ensure the most efficient and effective organization specifically, the Budget Formulation and the Programming Division. In order to maintain consistency and make the smooth transition from the Program Objective Memorandum POM to the Budget Estimate Submission BES, the two divisions should be combined under one directorate. Issues are continuously being worked that affect the budget and POM years and a better understanding of how one affects the other would be beneficial. Having the same individuals or office working the issues would provide consistency and provide manpower savings. Transportation Command and Forces Command are consolidating positions and are taking steps to streamline their resource functions. It would be to USASOCs best interest to do the same. The emphasis from Congress and the Department of Defense is to obtain overall efficiency in resource management.
