This thesis examines the Department of the Navy's budgetary process. It describes how the budgetary process works and analyzes the actions of the budget reviewing authorities. The Operations and Maintenance (0&M,N) , budgets submitted by the Major Claimants are examined to determine budget strategies and their effects on the reviewing process The data base used was the 0&M,N, FY1990 records from the Comptroller of the Navy's (NAVCOMPT) office. This analysis found that: Claimants who requested small (0-4.9 percent), increases, were the most successful at gaining budgetary increases. The most successful strategy was to minimize the initial NAVCOMPT cut, and aggressively use the reclama process to restore cuts. This appears to have been achieved through a strategy of aggressive line item justification. The OSD/OMB review was essentially a mechanical, across the board cut, which was modest in size. Most of the review adjustments were pricing changes, or reflected program changes. Some of the Major Claimants are consistently better than others at achieving budgetary success.
