The Defense Community Must Deal with a Highly Fluid Environment
The TechAmerica Foundation Vision Conference showcases the most comprehensive analysis of the future direction of Defense and Federal IT budgets available. By 2023 we expect the U. S. defense budget to be at a higher level by more than $50B from where we were in 2002. The Defense forecast is a combination of the base budget and OCO forecasts; it is dropping significantly due to our forecast of declining base budget and the end of the Overseas Contingency Operation funding.
Changes in DoD Forecast
The chart below delineates events that could potentially change the DoD forecast in an upward or downward direction. Absent an existential threat, pressures are on defense to go down further.
