This thesis will define and analyze the Department of Defense proposal to revise the method of determining whether items of equipment are financed from Procurement accounts or Operation and Maintenance accounts. Problems with the method currently in use are explained, along with Congressional objection to the Department of Defense proposal of revision. Data on the cost of items of equipment are presented and analyzed to determine the adequacy of the current dollar threshold that determines whether items are funded from Procurement accounts or Operation and Maintenance accounts. A method for determining a dollar threshold that will better meet the needs of the Department of Defense and still be acceptable to Congress is explained.
