Proper execution of appropriated funds is critical if the Navy hopes to maximize the optimization of their limited resources. The Navys Flight Hour FHP and Flight Hour Other FO programs are no exception. These programs are being managed by good people, utilizing inefficient and out dated practices that do not adequately take advantage of the many Process Change and Information Technology resources currently available in todays Navy. This project report will highlight the need for change in the FHPFO budget management process, discuss successful process change efforts within the Navy, demonstrate the functionality of change in the FHPFO management process through information technology, and provide a roadmap to a solution that is in alignment with the Navys goals outlined in Naval Power 21...A Naval Vision. Process Change using Information Technology is a mandate in DoD. Information Technology can be the enabler to PC that allows more effective and efficient use of the Navys most powerful resource - its people.
