This thesis provides an analysis of the causal factors leading to the increased influence and authority of the CINCs in the defense resource decision and allocation process. A discussion is provided on the various Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) reforms which lead to the enhancement of the CINCs' role in the Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System. Major issues, constraints, control and implementation problems currently confronting the CINCs are explored. A brief summary of the initiatives begun by Deputy Secretary of Defense (DEPSECDEF) Taft to increase the involvement of the CINCs in the defense programming process also is provided. The policy issues related to implementation of the Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense (DoD) reorganization Act of 1986 are reviewed along with some of the positive and negative aspects of the increased demand for CINC participation in PPBS. Conclusions and recommendations for further study are furnished
