This thesis analyzes the possible problems and potential benefits that the Polish Government and the Polish Ministry of National Defense (PMND) might experience if these institutions implemented a system similar to the US planning, Programming, and Budgeting System (PPBS). The thesis provides an overview of the PPBS at the Department of Defense level including a description of the main participants. It also provides a comparison of the different processes used by the US services. This is followed by a thorough description of the Polish Budgetary System. The analysis of the two systems reveals several significant differences. These differences stem from the laws, national interests and finally from the different structures of the armed forces. Even with these differences, the analysis shows several potential benefits that support incorporating a system based on the PPBS. These benefits include, a strategic planning approach toward managing scarce resources, long-term planning, and efficiencies that would ensure the defense industry. Finally, a recommendation is made to implement a system similar to the PPBS in the Polish Ministry of National Defense.
