Abstract : Because the budget process used by the Depot Maintenance Business Area (DMBA) is not sufficiently flexible and responsive, AF/LGSY and SAF/FMBM are organizing a DMBA Budget Process Review. Synergy support will cover the DMBA Budget Review Process and will be provided directly to the Aircraft/Missile Support Division and to other participants in the DMBA Review Process. The primary goal of the DMBA Budget Process Review is to improve the internal DMBA budgeting and pricing processes. Specific improvements to the DMBA Budget Process include: (1) improved accuracy of the budget; (2) improved timeliness of budget submissions; (3) more flexibility in analyzing the impact of proposed changes; (4) improved assessments of the impact of cost and customer funding changes on prices, and (5) improved assessments of the impact of overall workload changes on individual customers. The Supply Management Business Area (SMBA) is made up of seven distinct divisions, each using its own algorithms for developing key budget exhibits. Synergy's objective is to analyze these different methods, resulting in standardization of procedures and the implementation of these procedures in the Automated Budget Analysis/Centralized User System (ABACUS), the system used by the Air Force to develop its DBOF budget. This document explains the goats, objectives, and technical approach of the task explained above.
