Overview: The course is available to government and contractor personnel, in the DoD PPBE arena, particularly those supporting Department of the Navy (DON) programs. Our training provides in-depth description and optional demonstration of processes, procedures and exhibits used during the budget formulation, presentation and execution phases.
Why Immersion? Our course of instruction is different from similar courses available at the Defense Acquisition University or other commercial training firms. We provide insight on key relationships among exhibits such as OP-32 and OP-5; the various Procurement and R&D exhibits, and more. We provide analytical techniques and walk you through the internal and external phases of the budget and execution process.
Coverage: Instructors are Immersion staff with over 70 years of DoD and DON level experience in Military Personnel, Operation and Maintenance, Procurement, R&D (including Science & Technology, Test, and Evaluation), Military Construction, Contingency Operations and Navy Working Capital Fund.
We provide practice exercises and discussion of ‘real time’ budget challenges that attendees may be faced with today. In addition, attendees are provided access to our Sharepoint Learning Management System (LMS) e-learning site for advanced analytics, refresh training, and sample desk guides on a variety of topics.
Length: Course length is one or three days, targeted to address the development needs of ‘trainee to journeyman’ level budget, financial and program analysts. Customized training (half day to one day) is also available to accommodate the focused needs of managers at all levels.
Cost: Contact us for pricing information. Discounts are available for groups of ten or more. Other flexible pricing options are available if conducted offsite.
