Abstract : To carry out their responsibilities for strategic planning and business process reengineering, the Defense Department's managers need reliable financial resource information that reflects the costs of the functional activities they manage. An analysis has been conducted that uses the DoD Future Years Defense Program (FYDP) to develop financial resource baselines for DoD's functional activities. The FYDP is considered the best single source for resource information because it is DoD's official resource data base, the resources displayed in the FYDP are mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive, and its standardized structure ensures that resource information can be obtained on a recurring basis with a consistent set of definitions and terms. This report maps the financial resource records in the FYDP data base to the Department's functional activities and associated responsible managers. The report recommends follow-on actions that would enable functional managers to use the FYDP to support their strategic planning and reengineering; provide managers with enhanced tools, or new resource linkages within existing tools; and identify enhancements to the FYDP that would improve its utility to functional managers.
