Mission And Support Activities
Section 113(1) of Title 10, United States Code, requires the Department of Defense (DoD) to identify resources allocated to mission and support activities in each of the five preceding fiscal years. In response to that requirement, Appendix C provides year-byyear comparisons of:
• DoD funding (in constant dollars) allocated to forces and infrastructure (Table C-l).1
• DoD manpower allocated to forces and infrastructure (Tables C-2 through C-7).
• DoD manpower in management headquarters and headquarters support activities, compared to active-duty military end-strength (Table C-8).
Data for the reporting period (FY 1999-2003) have been normalized for definitional or accounting changes.
As shown in Table C-l, the Department is allocating about 43% of Total Obligational Authority (TOA) to infrastructure activities in FY 2003, down from about 44% in the preceding year. Tables C-2 through C-8, which address DoD manpower, show continued reductions in manpower for infrastructure activities. This is an important measure of the Department's progress in improving the efficiency of its support operations. The efficiencies achieved result from initiatives in the Quadrennial Defense Review and Defense Reform Initiatives, including savings from previous base realignment and closure rounds, strategic and competitive sourcing initiatives, and privatization and reengineering efforts.
In tracking annual resource allocations, this appendix uses mission and infrastructure definitions that support macro-level comparisons of DoD resources such as those presented here. The definitions are based on the 2001 Quadrennial Defense Review, the Future Years Defense Program (FYDP), and a soon-to-be-published Institute for Defense Analyses publication, DoD Force and Infrastructure Categories: A FYDP-Based Conceptual Model of Department of Defense Programs and Resources, prepared for the

Office of the Secretary of Defense. The definitions are consistent with the GoldwaterNichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act of 1986 (P.L. 99-433). This Act requires that combat units, and their organic support, be routinely assigned to the combatant commanders and that the military departments retain the activities that create and sustain those forces. This feature of U.S. law provides the demarcation line between forces (military units assigned to combatant commanders) and infrastructure (activities retained by the military departments). In addition to more precisely distinguishing forces from infrastructure, the force subcategories have been updated to reflect current operational concepts. The infrastructure subcategories likewise have been updated and streamlined.
The sections that follow define the force and infrastructure categories addressed in this appendix. Each FYDP program element is assigned to one and only one force or infrastructure category.
• Expeditionary Forces. Operating forces designed primarily for nonnuclear operations outside the United States. Includes combat units (and their organic support) such as divisions, tactical aircraft squadrons, and aircraft carriers.
• Deterrence and Protection Forces. Operating forces designed primarily to deter or defeat direct attacks on the United States and its territories. Also includes those agencies engaged in U.S. international policy activities under the direct supervision of the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
• Other Forces. Includes most intelligence, space, and combat-related command, control, and communications programs, such as cryptologic activities, satellite communications, and airborne command posts.
• Force Installations. Installations at which combat units are based. Includes the services and organizations at these installations necessary to house and sustain the units and support their daily operations. Also includes programs to sustain, restore, and modernize buildings at the installations and protect the environment
• Communications and Information Infrastructure. Programs that provide secure information distribution, processing, storage, and display. Major elements
