From the document: “The Secretary of Defense has directed a comprehensive zero-based review of all defense-wide (DW) functions and activities. The immediate goal of this review is to identify time, money, and manpower resources that can be reallocated to our highest priorities in support of the National Defense Strategy (NDS) through the FY 2021-2025 Program and Budget Review, as well as adjustments to FY 2020 where feasible. The review will also support a longer-term focus on structural reform, ensuring all DW activities are aligned to the NDS while evaluating the division of functions between DW organizations and the Military Departments. This longer-term focus will produce additional savings in support of future budget cycles.”
