DoD Sends FY 2017 Supplemental Budget Plan for OMB Review

The Defense Department has submitted for review by the Office of Management and Budget a supplemental DoD budget request for fiscal 2017, Defense News reported Friday.

Lt. Col. Eric Badger, a DoD spokesman, was quoted by Defense News as saying the department’s budget amendment material will not affect its ongoing push for the passage of a full-year appropriations package in Congress.

The House on Wednesday approved a $577.9 billion budget for DoD’s national security programs in FY 2017, up $5.2 billion from the enacted funding level a year ago.

Gen. David Goldfein, chief of staff at the U.S. Air Force and an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2017, told reporters in February that the service branch would request funds to conduct a flight demonstration of a light attack aircraft.
