Bob Hale, former DoD comptroller and senior executive advisor at Booz Allen Hamilton, discusses how Congress could pare down the $750 billion Pentagon budget proposal, and why the position of comptroller is “good for a Grinch”


The Department of Defense’s $750 billion topline budget is the third number the department has been given to work with. The proposed budget has fluctuated from $733 billion, to $700 billion, and back up to $750 billion. Bob Hale, former DoD comptroller and senior executive advisor at Booz Allen Hamilton, says that the topline number might not matter as much this year due to Congress.   “The president by long authority can propose what he thinks is right for any federal agency regardless of law. However, the Congress is going to have to deal with the Budget Control Act. Frankly, I don’t think that will occur until next calendar year because it is such a hard decision to raise the caps…” Hale said.
