Abstract
This thesis examines the Department of the Navy's Research, Development, Test and Evaluation organization, missions, goals, program structure, and budget process, with particular emphasis on the weapons systems test and evaluation community. It also examines the current and future DoD budget climate, to include overall Defense, DoN, RDT&E and T&E budget projections through FY1995. The aggregate impact of Congressional budget actions, investment strategies, endstrength reductions, and Defense Management Review initiatives on budgetary planning for Navy T&E activities is described and assessed. As a result of these efforts certain conclusions are made, and general recommendations proposed for future Navy T&E planning and budgeting activities.
