Abstract : The Navy programming process which develops and formulates the POM has four stages: (1) analysis, (2) decisions, (3) program adjustments, and (4) rationale. These stages intertwine and complement each other during the development and formulation of the POM. The Navy programming processes include: Focusing the Navy decision making process; Considering all significant issues and alternatives to develop an optimal Navy thru tradeoffs; Developing an annual Naval posture statement and allocating constrained resources for 5-year periods; and allowing decision makers to further assess the impact of today's decisions on future Naval posture. A POM is generated; it continues the dialog with OSD and proposes changes to approved programs. This study provides overviews of the DOD PPBS process, of the Navy PPBS process, and of the POM and associated programming phase.
