Staffer: Use strategy to allocate resources

November 22, 2010

It is nearly impossible to overstate the importance of resource allocation in the execution of policy.  Yet one of the overarching themes we see in our goal for national security transformation is that government spending is not aligned with our national security strategy.

Additionally, there is no overarching fiscal plan that takes a wholistic, government-wide view.  What is needed is a system that helps to unite agencies on the strategic level, which, in turn would address the fiscal issue.  To quote an early PNSR publication, the system is “simply not designed to address interagency needs” (Forging a New Shield).  National security transformation would provide an organizational framework to better align strategy and resources.
