This thesis evaluates the adequacy of the financial management and budgeting training provided to ground supply officers in the United States Marine Corps. Data, based on the responses to a questionnaire, were compiled to summarize the perspective of operating unit supply officers regarding their financial management/budgeting training. This information is contrasted with data obtained during interviews with selected financial managers in the operating forces regarding their views on the performance levels of supply officers relative to their financial and budgeting duties. The author concludes that the current financial training is not adequate considering the scope of a supply officer's duties at the operating unit level. The author recommends: (1) that the training be expanded to approximately twice its current instruction length and include practical application exercises and (2) that professional financial managers, not supply personnel, conduct the financial/budgeting instruction at the ground supply officers course.
