Abstract : The Cost Center Performance Measurement System is a financial management system that was implemented to help managers make better use of Air Force resources by assisting them in making decisions. The heart of this financial management system is the Cost Center Performance Summary (CCPS). This study was conducted to determine the extent to which financial managers within the Strategic Air Command and the United States Air Force in Europe were utilizing the CCPS to influence their managerial decisions.
