Abstract
This thesis examines the U.S. Navy's involvement in the defense buildup program by focusing on Department of the Navy procurement budgets during fiscal years 1981 through 1989. Appropriated Budget Authority for five DON procurement appropriations are examined for the major trends exhibited during this period. The data collected for the nine year period, FY 1981 through 1989, indicated that Department of the Navy procurement budgeting, primarily incremental in nature, is significantly affected by other factors. The trends exhibited by the procurement appropriations indicated sensitivity to DON funding levels as well as to explicit policy changes by Congress and the President. Theses trends emphasize the need for precise planning, programming, and budgeting by the Navy to ensure the necessary resources are available to meet commitments during negative growth in DON budgets during the 1990's.
