The purpose of this thesis is to examine the duties and responsibilities of Marine Corps Financial Managers at the major command level. The thesis involved a thorough review of Department of Defense (DoD), Department of the Navy (DoN), and Marine Corps orders, publications and directives to determine those keys areas considered most essential to Marine Corps financial management specialists in the performance of their duties. The thesis provides a brief overview of the financial management occupational field. It then examines the roles and responsibilities of Marine Corps financial managers and concludes with a chapter on education and professional development opportunities available to Marine Corps financial managers as they progress in their careers. Based on the research, a set of guidelines was created to assist financial management specialists by serving as an initial source of information on major financial management functions such as: (1) Planning Programming, Budgeting System (PPBS); (2) budget formulation and execution; (3) Marine Corps accounting procedures; and (4) Resource, Evaluation and Analysis. These guidelines are designed primarily for those officers (MOS 9644) who have had very limited experience in the financial management field outside of their graduate level educational training through the Naval Postgraduate School.
