    Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates

    Eisenhower Library, Abilene, Kansas

      • Concept plans

  • Business School Answer

    • Divesture

      • Streamlining

  • Business School Answer

    • Divesture

      • Wants vs. Needs

      • Change in Mission

    • Streamlining

      • Supposed to be cleaner

      • Careful that we do not streamline into a mission failure

    • Reduction in Overhead

      • Fastest growing component of budget

      • Relationship to centralization of systems – finance, accounting, human resources, IT networks/communications

    • Elimination of Redundant Processes

      • Do I have to do this? Why?

  • Recommendations to Find the Savings

    • Budgeting

      • Execution

        • Follow through!

Managing your budget find the savings in the budget l.jpg
Managing Your Budget Find the Savings in the Budget

  • Budgeting

    • Currently – Last years’ plus 2-3%

    • Set the baseline

    • Are the models still accurate?

  • Create a Cost Culture

    • Physical upgrades to access control points will equal a 26% reduction in guard requirements

    • 1SG Barracks Initiative – recoup excess BAH; $130M savings in ten years

  • Defending the Budget

    • Idea formed

    • G8/PAE POMs for the idea with the PEG

    • ABO documents the idea in a “stub”

    • Army defends the idea to OSD

    • Army briefs and defends the idea to Congress

    • Congress appropriates budget

  • If my grandmother can not understand the new idea, it will probably not get funded!
