FY00/01 President's Budget Highlights   [open pdf - 2MB]

The FY 00/01 biennial budget reflects a budget consistent with the priorities of the Defense Planning Guidance (DPG), constrained only by affordability considerations. Readiness and sustainability remains the Army's first priority. Total Army OPTEMPO and pay accounts were increased. Funding for the Reserve Components was improved significantly. The Army continues a balanced modernization strategy. Overall funding levels were maintained to ensure future readiness. Force structure and end strength were maintained in accordance with the DPG. The Army increased base operations and real property maintenance funding as part of the overall budget funding increase. The enhanced funding level will significantly reduce further growth of deferred maintenance and repair. A large portion of the FY OO Army funding for Real Property Maintenance has been placed in the Defense-wide Quality of Life account until year of execution and therefore is not reflected as Army resources in this budget. The FY00-FY0l President's Budget provides funding necessary to fulfill the National Security Strategy of shaping, responding, and preparing.
