Defense Business Operations Fund (DBOF): Problems and Promise : Public Budgeting & Finance , December , 1995
Public Budgeting & Finance
From the abstract: "In 1991, the United States Department of Defense established the Defense Business Operations Fund (DBOF). The DBOF includes support activities with a business volume well in excess of $80 billion annually, and it provides activities and services that are essential to the operation of the military forces. The necessity to reduce the defense budget and to find innovative ways of producing more defense than would be possible under prior operating and management arrangements caused the Department of Defense (DoD) to look to alternative economic and business models."
