Chapter Six: Financial Information

Operating Budget

The 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 personnel and maintain equipment. A complete overview of the DMP’s budget, including initial allocation and expenditures, can be found at Table 6-1.

Figure 6-1 shows the DMP’s operating budget over the last five reporting periods.

In previous reporting periods, court martial expenses were included as part of the DMP’s operating budget.  Beginning last fiscal year, court martial expenses have been administered through a centralized fund. Due to various factors, such as the number of courts martial, the duration of courts martial, as well as unpredictable expenses, including the requirement for expert witnesses, court martial expenditures can vary greatly from one reporting period to the next. This reporting period, the prosecution’s portion of the expenditures for courts martial was $35,418.81.
