From the document: “The Department of Defense (DOD) resource allocation process—the Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution (PPBE) system— is now sixty years old. It has brought discipline and rigor to one of the toughest budget environments in the government. It has also been criticized for being slow and bureaucratic, hindering DOD’s efforts to accelerate modernization in the face of fast paced high technology advancement and increasing aggressive near peer adversaries. The 2022 National Defense Authorization Act directed establishment of a PPBE reform commission. This report provides an overview and history of the PPBE system, recommends three key challenges that the commission should address, and identifies obstacles that the commission should avoid.”
