Abstract:

The FYOl Presidents Budget continues to carefully integrate and balance competing priorities. It puts people first, emphasizes readiness, and sustains relevant time-phased modernization and infrastructure programs while continuing the transformation toward an Expeditionary Aerospace Force. This budget targets specifics capabilities and issues. We invested in Basic Allowance for Housing BAH and Recruiting and Advertising to increase retention and ensure we have the people needed to reverse historic mission readiness trends. Other additions address specific operational requirements such as Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures, JSTARS, higher fuel costs, and increased requirements for spare parts. Modest increases to Science and Technology will also help underpin future core capabilities.
