This report documents Phase 1 of a RAND project to provide an analytic capability to assist USFK (United States Forces, Korea) in its Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System deliberations and decisions. The goal of the study was to focus on broad strategic issues facing the command, yet to be sufficiently detailed to address specific resource allocation and program decisions. Phase 1 required the development of an analytic framework for dealing with resource issues and the identification of key USFK military and nonmilitary activities that affect USFK's resource planning and programming. The process is described in this report. Subsequent phases will develop alternative strategies for the utilization of the USFK's resources. Eventually, the analytic tools and methodologies will be instituted in the command.
