Ryan McCarthy Previews Army’s FY 2020 Budget Plan

1 min read

Army Undersecretary Ryan McCarthy has offered a preview of the service’s budget request for fiscal 2020 at a Center for a New American Security event held on Monday, FCW reported Monday.

"There are some hard choices in this budget, and there will be more in the future,” McCarthy said about the service’s spending plan to be released next week. "A lot of the cuts you'll see are in the backend of the budget because that's where we'll need the financing the most, because that's when [prototypes] are going through the operational test and start the fielding" across the service. 

The report noted the service has cut programs worth more than $30 billion over five years as part of a zero-based approach to find and redirect funds to other initiatives.
