Foundations of PPBE (Planning, Programming, Budgeting & Execution)

This course provides an overview of the federal budgeting process. It will focus on the Planning, Programming, Budgeting and Execution (PPBE) process, principally from the perspective of its main practitioner in the Federal government, the Department of Defense. It will examine the principal inputs to PPBE (policy, strategy, fiscal reality and political will) following them through their conversion to an executable budget, and will learn about the strategic planning and the programming processes through which missions are translated into budget commodities. The Congressional budget process will also be discussed.
