Jamie Morin, director of cost assessment and program evaluation at the Defense Department, has said the programming facet of the planning, programming and budgeting process aims to bring “comprehensive deterrence” for the U.S., DoD News reported Monday.

Jim Garamone writes Morin made the remarks at a Center for Strategic and International Studies event in Washington Monday.

“[Programming] is really about connecting the broad goals of our strategy and of our operational planning with the capabilities, the capacity and the readiness that’s required to carry them out,” Morin added.

He said his office sought guidance from Defense Secretary Ashton Carter in order to identify strategic priorities and critical objectives necessary to draft the details of the Pentagon’s budget request for fiscal year 2017, Garamone reports.

Morin also discussed the three key principles in the strategic portfolio review of power projection.

These include the U.S.’ ability to convey effects from range, disaggregation of complex systems into simple components necessary to perform military tasks and the need to leverage aspects of relative sanctuary through investments in new weapons systems and other technology platforms, according to the report.
