Managing the Military More Efficiently: Potential Savings Separate from Strategy

Managing the Military More Efficiently: Potential Savings Separate from Strategy

Stimson released a report surveying numerous boards, commissions, and study groups on their recommendations on how to better manage the defense budget, with a special focus on personnel compensation, manpower utilization and procurement practices. While no one will embrace every option and some options are contradictory, these changes would represent savings of nearly $1 trillion over 10 years.

Speakers included Barry Blechman, Stimson co-founder and chair of the Peterson Foundation Defense Advisory Group; Matthew Leatherman, research analyst with Stimson's Budgeting for Foreign Affairs and Defense Program; and David Oliver, EADS North America strategic advisor, former Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology & Logistics and retired Navy Rear Admiral (Upper Half).
