IN BRIEF: 2014 Pentagon budget would cut procurement and research accounts by 11.3 percent

The proposed U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) budget for fiscal year 2013 would cut military procurement and research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) spending by 11.3 percent over this year's request, according to DOD budget documents. The military procurement and RDT&E accounts hold the vast majority of money the Pentagon has earmarked for military electronics and electro-optics. Now the proposed Pentagon budget goes to Congress, where its approval is expected sometime next fall. Next year the Pentagon proposes to spend $166.8 billion on procurement and RDT&E, which is down 11.3 percent from this year's request of $188.1 billion. The U.S. Army takes the hardest hit in the 2014 Pentagon budget, with a proposed cut of 24.5 percent in procurement and research. The Navy and Marine Corps would take a cut 6.4 percent, while the Air Force would take a cut of 10 percent. Service-independent Pentagon agencies would take a 32.7 percent cut in procurement and research compared to this year's request.
