FUNDING PLAN (DART)
PURPOSE: To identify finds required vis-a-vis funds available (allocated in current FY, budgeted in next FY, and programmed in
out-years) for each improvement program task or subelernent outlined in the corrective action program.
PROGRAM ELEMENT: List each task or subelement of the corrective action program identified to like funding (OPN, O&MN,
RDT&E). This lit should closely follow the milestone plan in that all major milestone events represent program tasks. Typical program
elements include procurement of spare parts (OPN), procurement of SHIPALT material (OPN), accomplishment of SHIPALTs under
FMP (OPN), test of prototypes (RDT&E), improvement of documentation (O&MN), equipment refit programs (O&MN), installation
of D alts (O&MN, Fleet), contractor engineering support (OPN), in-house engineering support (O&MN), and so forth.
TYPE OF FUNDS: Normally OPN, O&MN, and RDT&E.
ACTIVITY: Activity responsible for budget submission and execution.
DEFICIT: Represents difference between funds required and funds allocated, budgeted, or programmed. For the executin FY, there
should be zero deficit after midyear review unless funds are expected at rollback time. For the budget FY, the deficit represents additionat
funds required beyond those currently in the DOD budget submitted to Congress. After apportionment time, this deficit should reduce
to zero unless a decision is made to defer funding until midyear review. For the out-years, the deficit represents the difference between
the POM submit and current requirements. This deficit should be zero if the improvement program is defined before the POM submit.

1. Implementation plan: An update or revision of
the report shown in figure 7-3, originally submitted in
the scoping phase.
2. Major milestone plan: An update or revision of
the report shown in figure 7-4, originally submitted in
the scoping phase. If more than one major milestone
plan was submitted in the scoping phase, the SYSCOM
or PM may elect to submit a composite of those, or to
update each plan.
3. Milestone plan: An expansion of the major
milestones for the current fiscal year (see fig. 7-6, views
A and B). The milestone plan is first submitted as part
of the first quarterly report, then updated quarterly
thereafter. As noted in paragraph 3, if more than one
