CIC's DOD Budget Proposal

President Barack Obama today sent to Congress a proposed defense budget of $526.6 billion in discretionary budget authority to fund defense programs in the base budget for fiscal year (FY) 2014. 

The FY 2014 request does yet not include a detailed budget for Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO).  Decisions regarding force levels in Afghanistan were delayed until February of this year to provide commanders time to assess wartime needs fully.  A separate OCO request is being prepared and will be submitted to Congress in the coming weeks.

Highlights of the proposed DoD budget are outlined here.

For more information and to view the entire FY 2014 budget proposal, please visit here  and download the "FY 2014 Budget Request Overview Book."  Budget-related transcripts will be available later today here.

The Department of Defense released a document today summarizing decisions made in support of the fiscal year 2014 President's Budget submission.

The document, "Defense Budget Priorities and Choices -- Fiscal Year 2014," is available here.
