Abstract : Resource management is a complex occupation that requires aptitude in many fields. Resource managers play an important role in the commanders ability to carry out his fiduciary responsibilities. Field Manual 14-6 provides a lot of information on Army resource management and should describe the processes for accomplishing resource management support for Army operations. This paper discusses two areas that the field manual fails to address sufficiently; fiscal law and contracting. It concludes with the recommendation that the manual be revised to add more detailed information in both areas. The added information should provide Army resource managers a solid base of knowledge in contracting and fiscal law.
