Chapter Nine: Financial Information

Operating Budget

DMP’s operating budget is allocated primarily to operations and is divided into four main categories: Regular Force Operations and Maintenance, Civilian Salary and Wages, Reserve Force Pay and Reserve Force Operations and Maintenance. Operations and Maintenance includes items such as travel, training costs, general office expenditures and other costs that support the personnel and maintain equipment. A complete overview of DMP’s budget including initial allocation and expenditures can be found at Table 9-1.  Figure 9-2 shows DMP’s operating budget over a five year period.

In previous reporting periods court martial expenses was included as a part of DMP’s operating budget. However, court martial expenses are no longer a part of the DMP’s budget but instead are administered through a centralized fund. Due to various factors such as the number of courts, the duration of courts as well as any unpredictable expenses such as the requirement for expert witnesses, etc., court martial expenditures can be difficult to plan for and can vary greatly from one reporting period to the next.  This year the total expenditures for courts martial was $248,873.90.
