Approaches for Scaling Back the Defense Department劌製 Budget Plans
David Arthur (au)
In 2013, the Dept. of Defense (DoD) faces an 11% reduction (after adjusting for inflation) in its base budget from the amount it received in 2012. (The base budget funds DoD劌製 normal activities but excludes overseas military operations like those in Afghanistan.) Under current law, DoD劌製 budgets will increase by a cumulative total of 2% more than inflation between 2013 and 2021, still well below its funding in 2012 in real (inflation-adjusted) terms. Those limits are mandated by the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA), which capped annual funding for defense and nondefense agencies during that period. The reduction in 2013, however, follows a period of generally increasing real resources for DoD; from 2001 to 2010, funding for DoD劌製 base budget rose by more than 40%, after adjusting for inflation. In real terms, after the reduction in 2013, DoD劌製 base budget is about what it was in 2007 and is still 7% above the average funding since 1980. This report analyzed the cost of implementing DoD劌製 plans (as presented in its 2013 budget request and related planning documents) and examined general approaches that DoD might take to comply with the budget caps. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
