Abstract : The Army uses the Program Optimization and Budget Execution (PROBE) data management system to document its Position in the Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution System (PPBES). Although PROBE includes PPBES data, significant improvements could be made in three main areas. First, the MDEP (Management Decision Packages) Profiles system needs to be integrated into the PROBE data base so that Requirements, Guidance, MACOM Look, and Analysis are documented. Second, manpower information can be improved by: (1) synchronizing the Structure and ManPower Allocation System (SAMAS) and Civilian ManPower Obligations Resources (CMORE) with the PROBE dollars in the same Working Files, (2) ensuring civilian pay calculations are covered by sufficient resources to pat civilian salaries, and (3) cross-referencing civilian pay reimbursements to reimbursable destinations. Third, the Long Range Research, Development, and Acquisition Plan (LRRDAP) and new equipment procurement dollars need to Include: (1) linkage to related appropriations (Operations and Maintenance Army (OMA), Military Construction Army, etc.); (2) full funding of Operating Tempo (OPTEMPO) first-year sustainment costs for new equipment fieldings; and (3) Program Element rather than project code information in PROBE.
