Appendix L
RESOURCES ALLOCATED TO SUPPORT AND MISSION ACTIVITIES

RESOURCES ALLOCATED TO SUPPORT AND MISSION ACTIVITIES

Section 915 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1999 (Public Law 105–261) requires the Department of Defense (DoD) to identify resources allocated to mission and support activities in each of the five preceding fiscal years. In response to that requirement, Appendix L provides year–by–year comparisons of:

· DoD funding (in constant dollars) allocated to mission and infrastructure (or support) programs (Table L–1).

· DoD manpower allocated to mission and infrastructure (or support) programs (Tables L–2 through L–7).

· DoD manpower in management headquarters and headquarters support activities, compared to active–duty military end–strength (Table L–8).

Data for the reporting period (FY 1996–2001) have been normalized for definitional or accounting changes. The principal adjustments were required by Army and Air Force reclassifications that moved significant resources from infrastructure to mission categories.

DEFINITIONS

In tracking annual resource allocations, this appendix uses definitions of mission and infrastructure adopted by the Department for the 1993 Bottom–Up Review and employed subsequently in the 1997 Quadrennial Defense Review. (In this context, the term infrastructure is synonymous with support.) The definitions support macro–level comparisons of DoD resources, such as those presented here. They are based on the DoD Future Years Defense Program (FYDP) and on a 1991 Institute for Defense Analyses publication, A Reference Manual for Defense Mission Categories, Infrastructure Categories, and Program Elements, prepared for the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

The definitions apply to a group of mission and infrastructure categories, where each FYDP program element is assigned to a unique category. The specific categories used in the definitions are as follows.

Mission Categories

· Combat Forces. Programs associated with military combat units, such as heavy divisions, tactical aircraft squadrons, and aircraft carriers.

· Direct Support Forces. Programs associated with support units that deploy with combat forces, such as corps–level support, tanker aircraft squadrons, and naval replenishment ships.

· Other Forces. Includes most intelligence, space, and combat–related command, control, and communications (C3) programs, such as cryptologic activities, satellite communications, and airborne command posts.

Infrastructure Categories

· Science and Technology. Consists of basic research, exploratory development, and advanced development programs.

· Acquisition Infrastructure. Consists of program offices and similar acquisition organizations as well as the test and evaluation infrastructure.

· Installation Support. Consists of base operations and real property maintenance activities that support installations from which military forces operate. Also includes environmental programs and family housing activities. Base operations or real property maintenance that supports an infrastructure function (such as logistics) is included with that infrastructure category, and is therefore not addressed under installation support.

· Central C3 Infrastructure. Programs that manage C3 assets or that provide centrally–managed C3 services, such as base–level communications.

· Force Management. Programs that provide DoD–wide administrative functions. Includes management and operational headquarters activities directly related to military forces.

· Central Logistics. Consists of material management, depot maintenance, transportation, and logistics–related support functions (such as logistics management headquarters and installation support). Logistics functions that are part of combat or direct support forces are considered within the respective mission categories (as opposed to the infrastructure category).

· Central Medical. Programs that provide medical care to active–duty military personnel, dependents, and retirees.

· Central Personnel Support. Includes dependent support activities, acquisition of new DoD personnel, personnel transient and holding accounts, and miscellaneous personnel–related support functions, such as recruiting.

· Central Training. Comprises programs that provide central (or non–unit) training to defense personnel. Includes command–managed training, training of new personnel, officer training and academies, aviation and flight training, and military professional and skill training. Also includes miscellaneous other training–related support functions.

· Resource Adjustments. Consists of minor centrally–managed accounts, such as foreign currency fluctuations.
