Abstract:

In most years, the Department of Defense DoD provides a five- or six-year plan, called the Future Years Defense Program FYDP, associated with the budget that it submits to the Congress. Because decisions made in the near term can have consequences for the defense budget well beyond that period, the Congressional Budget Office CBO has examined the programs and plans contained in DoD s FYDP and projected their budgetary impact in subsequent years. For this analysis, CBO used the FYDP provided to the Congress in April 2011, which covers fiscal years 2012 to 2016. CBO s projections span the years 2012 to 2030.
