Abstract : This thesis examines the financial control structure for managing training resources utilized by U.S. Army Forces Command (FORSCOM). It reviews the current methodology for training resource management at FORSCOM, and provides an example of the conduct of budget forecasting and funding allocations. A fiscal model is developed to improve and simplify financial management of training resources within Army divisions and battalions. Data from a small scale test illustrate potential model data. Conclusions and recommendations are provided to determine if the model can be implemented in current Army budget procedures. This thesis not only attempts to focus upon current fund control system inadequacies, but also provides a clear review of the current methodology and presents a course of action to improve training resource management within Army units.
