This analysis establishes and tests condition for consistency of the post-appropriation resource allocation to attack aircraft carriers by the Navy and plans made by the Office of the Secretary of Defense under the Planning Programming Budgeting System. The Cobb-Douglas and Leontief production functions, using carrier operating tonnage as an output measure and Military Personnel and Operations and Maintenance appropriation dollars as inputs, are considered as possible models to explain the inexplicit economic technology used during different phases of the budgeting process. Econometric techniques, correlation analysis and other methods are used in analyzing data covering 1964 through 1973. A conclusion is reached that the Navy post-appropriation resource allocation did in fact alter plans made by OSD; both Department of Defense organization and other factors are discussed as potential explanations for the observed results.
