Abstract

The Department of Defense and the Army both responded to the Anti-Deficiency Act with various regulations and publications. The Department of Defense published DoD Directive 7200.1, which was designed to control agency appropriations and fix responsibility for violations of the Anti-Deficiency Act. The Army proposed an allowance system which would give greater flexibility in managing funds and would reduce the risk of violating the Anti-Deficiency Act. The Department of Defense is currently reviewing the Army’s proposal, and the author hopes the Army will approve the proposal or possibly incorporate some of the modifications included in the proposal.
