Maj. Gen. Robert Dyess: U.S. Army Crafts Two Versions of its Force Development Budget Plan

army stock photoThe U.S. Army has developed two versions of a budget plan for the service’s force development program amid uncertain future appropriations, Defense News reported Thursday.

Joe Gould writes the budget plan contains a one five-year spending scheme for sequestration and another five-year relief budget plan.

Maj. Gen. Robert Dyess, the Army’s force development chief, told a forum that the “program objective memorandum low” aims to protect funding for science and technology research while “POM high” will cover soldier equipment funding, according to the report.

Dyess said 120 acquisition programs across the Army remain susceptible to budget cuts under POM low, the report says.

He called on industry to suggest ways for officials who draft the requirements to reform budgets, Defense News reports.

Gould writes the Army is set to conduct a 30-year long-range investment requirements analysis in February.
