Abstract:

The Department of Defenses DOD Future Years Defense Program FYDP is the official document that summarizes the force levels and funding associated with specific programs that the Secretary of Defense would like to see approved by Congress. The FYDP presents estimated appropriation needs for the budget year for which funds are being requested from Congress and at least the 4 years following it. The fiscal year 2000 FYDP requested an additional 50.8 billion to the previously requested 1,053 billion total funding for fiscal years 2000-2003. As requested, this report identifies the major changes and adjustments in the 2000 FYDP as compared to the 1999 FYDP and discusses the risks that the 2000 FYDP faces that may prevent it from being implemented as planned.
