Abstract:

The Army Budget Office ABO, headed by the Deputy Asst Secretary of the Army for Budget DAB, supervises the formulation, justification, and execution of the Army budget. During the 1990s, declining budgets have outpaced cuts to force structure creating a financial dilemma for senior Army leaders struggling with how to pay for Army operations with fewer dollars. During this period, the Army has been able to reduce its operating budget by lowering the number of soldiers on active duty. Throughout the downsizing period, the ABO has often been required to conduct quick turn-around analyses on the budgetary impacts of different force sizing and basing options. The Pro Forma Model was designed and developed to provide the ABO with a tool for quickly and accurately conducting these types of analyses.
