I am reminded of a slide used in classroom presentations describing the PPBES
In 2003, the system was renamed PPBES, and processes were put in place to ensure that data associated with budget execution would inform resource allocation decisions.
There are several key phases associated with executing PPBES that generally occur:
While PPBES is designed to meet these challenges, it will clearly need a stronger governance model and some procedural adjustments to address the range of issues and tradeoff decisions awaiting the Obama administration.
Several significant reforms were instituted, and changes continue to be incorporated into PPBES in an attempt to improve this integration.
The use of CBP in AP does not have to exactly replicate the application of CBP in future force structure planning or in the broader PPBES.
Expanding the CBP framework into AP will address and define the interactions (inputs and outputs) between each element of the PPBES to provide synchronized support to the MDMP.
From our view, the PPBES cycle timing changes were sensible, given that new administrations often do not have the people in place or the insights necessary to put new DoD programs in place and prepare budget initiatives in the first year.
Proposed decisions in the new PPBES are intended to reach the Secretary before they have been made, while options are still open, and while important and large-scale changes still may be made.
It examines the PPBES
and current issues in resource management.
While the course gives sufficient general information about the parts of PPBES
that occur in the congressional authorization and appropriation processes and at the Department of Defense (DoD) level, it concentrates on what goes on within the Army, particularly at the major command and installation levels.
The ACC is a training course in Army financial management and comptrollership focusing on federal budget challenges, strategic planning, PPBES
, fiscal law, activity- and service-based costing, manpower management, contracting, management controls, competitive sourcing, financial operations, the legislative process, and installation and major command resource management.
