Abstract : The Department of the Navy has enacted a broad range of forward looking programs, policies and organizational changes designed to keep the Navy and Marine Corps in step with rapidly changing national security challenges. The Navy's ability to successfully conduct a wide range of demanding, real-world operations over the last year has validated this approach, and the foundation on which it was based. The plan this year is to follow through on the changes already begun, making modest course corrections where practical and necessary. The goal is to maintain a balance in programs that will best provide for both the current and future readiness of America's Naval forces. The broad outlines of the program are well established: a committment to a rightsized, recapitalized and ready force. These three themes- rightsizing, recapitalization and readiness- underpin this report. At the same time, The Navy and Marine Corps will remain focused on key continuing priorities, including people, appropriate technology, and efficiency.
