Long-Term Implications of the Department of Defenseís Fiscal Year 2010 Budget Submission: Testimony Before the Committee on Armed Services, U.S. House of Representatives
Matthew S. Goldberg (au)
Statement of Matthew S. Goldberg, Acting Assist. Dir., Congressional Budget Office (CBO). This testimony, the latest installment in CBOís analyses of DoDís budget requests, concerns CBOís preliminary projections for FY 2011 through 2028. Those projections are based in part on the Presidentís 2010 budget request and budget justification materials the Admin. provided to the Congress with that request. Among the other sources CBO consulted to supplement its analysis were DoD press releases and briefing materials and the Sec. of Defenseís announcement in April 2009 of changes to the nationís defense plans. For its analyses of past budget requests, CBO has drawn from information in DoDís Future Years Defense Program (FYDP), which typically is submitted to the Congress with the Presidentís annual budget request. This year, however, the Admin. did not submit a FYDP, which would have covered the years 2011 through 2015. CBO projects that carrying out the plans proposed in the Presidentís 2010 budget request, excluding overseas contingency operations (in general, overseas military operations against hostile forces ó currently consisting of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and military actions elsewhere to combat terrorism), would require defense resources averaging $567 billion annually (in constant 2010 dollars) from2011 to 2028. That amount is about 6% more than the $534 billion in total obligational authority (TOA) the Admin. requested in its regular 2010 budget, which is the portion of the budget that excludes funding for overseas contingency operations. Four main factors account for the higher resources required in the long term: The likelihood of continued real growth in pay and benefits for DoDís military and civilian personnel; The projected increases in the costs of operation and maintenance (O&M) for aging equipment as well as for newer, more complex equipment; DoDís plans to develop and field advanced weapon systems to replace many of todayís military systems that are nearing the end of their service lives; and Investments in new capabilities, such as advanced intelligence, surveillance, andreconnaissance systems, to meet emerging security threats.
