The new OASD (comptroller) programming/budgeting process : a lecture for the AFSC cost analysis course
A lecture presented at the Air Force Institute of Technology in September 1961, as part of a course in the techniques of weapon (support) system cost analysis. The author discusses the new OASD (Comptroller) programming-budgeting system that was introduced into the Department of Defense last year. The major objectives of the new system are examined, as well as its more important structural characteristics (e.g., the integration of planning-programming and budgeting, program packages and elements, and the types of submissions). Comments are included on the follow-on effort to improve and develop the new system to its ultimate potential.
