Manpower Programming and Resource Management

What is DoD's resource management system controlled by the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF)? PPBE (Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution)
Which phase improves our ability to translate top-down guidance into meaningful plans and requirements? Planning Phase
Which phase links the plan and the budget, allowing allocations in a systematic way with direct relationships to the roles and missions of the DoD, and translates planning guidance into dollars, forces, and manpower of approved AF programs? Programming Phase
In which phase do we refine costing of approved service programs, submit proposed budgets, and participate in SECDEF's review of proposed service budgets before the DoD budget is submitted to Congress. This phase formulates, executes, controls resources. Budgeting Phase

Who complies the Defense Planning Guide (DPG)? The SECDEF
What are the primary controlling factors in managing civilian resources? Validation of civilian manpower requirements by Manpower and Organization (MO) function, availability of manpower authorization, and availability of financial resources
IMA authorizations may NOT be used for __ When IMA administrative management is the sole justification
Joint operation planning includes the following Mobilization Planning, Deployment Planning, Employment Planning, Sustainment Planning
Asks, "Do we need to utilize Guard and Reserve Forces to meet our planned objectives?" "How are we going to use them?" Mobilization Planning
Asks, "When are they needed?" "What role are they playing?" Deployment Planning
Asks, "How will they be used?" "What part of the mission will they be doing?" Employment Planning
Asks, "What is needed to keep them operating?" Sustainment Planning
What are the 4 basic forms of command relationships? Combatant command, operational control, tactical control, and support

The War and Mobilization Plan (WMP) encompasses... Consists of 5 volumes, provides Air Staff, AF planners, and AF commanders with current priorities, planning factors, and JSCP apportioned forces for conducting and supporting operations
TPFDD encompasses... The electronic data portion of a contingency plan that coexist in JOPES/DCAPES
Adaptive Planning encompasses... Emphasis on "front end" elements of planning, allows combatant commander to develop a full range of flexible options
Contingency Planning encompasses... Developes responses to potential scenarios, determine forces required to achieve objectives, prepares deployment plans, and continually evaluates selected courses of action (COAs)
Crisis Action Planning encompasses... Driven by current events in real time & emergencies, is time-sensitive situations. Based on actual circumstances that exist when crisis action planning occurs. Ideally addresses the crisis situation
