Abstract : This study investigates the role of U.S. Army financial organizations and their ability to adequately provide finance operations in support of force projection operations. Two significant events brought about a change to the U.S. Army's finance organization. The first change was the establishment of multi-echelon finance organizations at the tactical and operational levels. The second change was a Department of Defense initiative that consolidated the service's finance centers. The change created the Defense Finance and Accounting Service. The change caused a reorganization of the Army's strategic level finance organization. This study analyzes the effect of both changes on the ability of Army finance organizations at the tactical, operational and strategic level to conduct finance operations in support of force projection operations. The analysis determines if the current organization supports the Army's force projection doctrine. The analysis reviews finance doctrine and finance organization capabilities to adequately support finance operations in support of force projection operations. The analysis uses the Army's force development review criteria of doctrine, leader development, organization and materiel in support of soldiers as the research methodology.
