Abstract : This study was conducted as part of a continuing effort to obtain actual (historical) life cycle costs of major Army systems from the Army's finance and accounting data. An hypothesis was formulated and tested concerning the ability of Budget Line Item Numbers (BLIN's) to be used in identifying total procurement costs of major Army systems, with a view to determining the feasibility of restructuring/redefining BLIN's to assist in collecting/tracking those costs.
