Using detailed program knowledge, proven cost management techniques and sound fiscal discipline MDW Associates assist the client with all phases of budget formulation, planning, documentation and justification.

The DoD’s Planning, Programming, Budgeting and Execution (PPBE) Process has proven successful enough to be accepted within the idiom of Congress and other Executive Departments. PPBE is a milestone driven system of strategic planning, program development and resource determination which enables the execution of National Security Strategy with limited resources. It is framed within a strictly regulated high-oversight environment. Once Congress marks-up and approves a budget, its objectives becomes a legal requirement.
