Abstract : The Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System of the U.S. DOD was developed to facilitate budgeting in terms of military forces and weapon systems. Costs were to be decided for the lifetime of a system, not just for the budget year. The planning and programming phases of PPBS have enabled the Secretary of Defense to see major force and support issued and have helped him to make effectively his decision. The Thai Ministry of Defense has attempted in many ways to develop the Royal Thai Armed Forces PPBS by choosing the U.S. system as a model for development of the Thai system and adapting it to fit the Thai needs. Today, the RTARF PPBS progresses slowly and the system is still unable to be put into operation because of many barriers.
