Abstract : Defense Management Report Decision (DMRD) 910 significantly changed the Army's Finance Corps structure. This study examines Finance Corps history and lessons learned that highlight DNRD 910's shortcomings. It argues that as a result of DMRD 910, there is no Department of the Army (DA) level finance structure to develop, review, and coordinate Joint Chiefs of Staff deliberate and crisis action plans; no structure to provide direct assistance and guidance to 0-6 level finance commanders; and in the event of a major regional contingency, no structure that could deploy and direct overall Army finance operations in the theater of war. This study recommends that the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Financial Management and Comptroller take action to elevate the United States Army Finance Command to assume these additional responsibilities.
