Abstract : The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) provides broad support services for military members and their families. While some of these services are paid for with congressionally appropriated funds, many others are covered by nonappropriated funding (NAF). However, with current defense planning calling for reductions in both the size of the force and its budget, DoD is seeking cost-saving synergies in the back-office operations of support services to facilitate maintaining those services at the current level.
