This thesis examines procedures the U.S. Navy employs in preparing the annual Program Objectives Memorandum. Beginning with an overview of the POM process in the Department of Defense, the thesis proceeds to a detailed exploration of POM activities in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations. The narrative focuses on two of the major "roles'—Resource and Assessment Sponsors. These two "sponsors" are described as they functioned during the POM-87 cycle, in the context of their relationships with major review groups, claimancies. and other major POM participants. Events of the POM-87 cycle are recounted as they actually occurred in two offices, to demonstrate how POM development took place in the real world. Among the major findings is that the Navy POM is prepared according to a variety of procedures, with considerable latitude accorded to individual managers. The complexity of the POM development process has created a web of relationships that is not always clearly understood. A particularly valuable aspect of this work is the bibliography; this listing constitutes an extensive research source for the topic of PPBS in general as well as for Navy POM procedures.
