After seven years of exceptional growth in the 1980s, the Department of Defense (DOD) budget is confronted with Congressional budget reduction and deficit control measures. A revised Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Act was passed in September 1987 setting annual deficit targets for fiscal years 1988 to 1993. If the legislation is implemented, DOD organizations face an extended period of financial constraint and budgetary uncertainty. This thesis examines the flight hour program of Commander, Patrol Wings Pacific in developing methods to prepare for an era of budget constraints. The thesis discusses the Gramm-Rudman Act and general organizational reaction to fiscal stress. It then analyzes management control of nonprofit organizations, productivity measurement, and alternative accounting and financial management information systems as means for coping with budget reduction. Decision-makers at all levels of the military must understand these methods in order to manage effectively in an era of financial constraint.
