GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  THE PURPOSE OF THIS MESSAGE IS TO PUBLISH FY12 MID-YEAR REVIEW (MYR) GUIDANCE IN ORDER TO PREPARE FOR A THOROUGH REVIEW OF MARINE CORPS EXPENDITURES, UNOBLIGATED BALANCES, AND CURRENT YEAR DEFICIENCIES (CYD) AND TO REALIGN FUNDING AS REQUIRED TO MEET SHORTFALLS AND EMERGENT REQUIREMENTS.
2.  THE MARINE CORPS LOST NEARLY ONE BILLION DOLLARS IN BUYING POWER IN ITS FY12 TOTAL OBLIGATION AUTHORITY WHEN COMPARED TO FY11 LEVELS.  REDUCTIONS IN OVERSEAS CONTINGENCY OPERATIONS (OCO) FUNDING COUPLED WITH OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS HAVE PLACED SIGNIFICANT DEMANDS ON THE MARINE CORPS AND NECESSITATE A THOROUGH REVIEW OF EXPENDITURES, OBLIGATION RATES, AND CURRENT YEAR DEFICIENCIES.  THE MYR IS A KEY ASPECT OF THIS REVIEW, AND IT INFORMS A PROCESS THAT WILL CULMINATE IN A VETTED AND APPROVED POSITION THAT DEFINES MARINE CORPS FUNDING PRIORITIES.  
3.  THIS MARADMIN PRESCRIBES THE PROCESS THAT WILL BE USED TO CONDUCT THIS MID YEAR REVIEW AND PROVIDES ESSENTIAL DEADLINES REQUIRED TO SUPPORT AN MROC DECISION IN MARCH 2012.  FOLLOWING PUBLICATION OF DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY REQUIREMENTS REGARDING MID-YEAR REVIEW (EXPECTED IN MARCH 2012), ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE MAY BE PUBLISHED VIA SEPCOR.
4.  FY12 MID-YEAR REVIEW GUIDANCE
4.A.  THE OBJECTIVE OF THE MID-YEAR REVIEW IS TO REVIEW EXECUTION RATES, CAPTURE FUNDING SHORTFALLS, DEVELOP PROPOSALS FOR REALIGNMENTS OF FUNDING, IDENTIFY REMAINING OR POTENTIAL FUNDING ISSUES, AND PROVIDE RECOMMENDED COURSES OF ACTION FOR MROC CONSIDERATION.
4.B.  DC, PR WILL CONDUCT A FORMAL MYR WITH EACH MAJOR REPORTING COMMAND AND HQMC ACTIVITY TO EVALUATE CURRENT YEAR OBLIGATION PERFORMANCE IN ALL APPROPRIATIONS.  ADDITIONALLY, MYR WILL IDENTIFY FUNDING DEFICIENCIES AND DEVELOP PROPOSED OFFSETS TO ADDRESS EMERGENT SHORTFALLS IN ALL APPROPRIATIONS.  MAJOR REPORTING COMMANDS AND ACTIVITIES SHOULD BE AWARE THAT DC, PR WILL GIVE PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO OCO OBLIGATION RATES; DUE TO SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTIONS IN FY 12 OCO FUNDING, IT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT THAT COMMANDS AND ACTIVITIES ARE EXECUTING OCO FUNDING IAW THEIR OBLIGATION PLAN.  IT IS ALSO IMPERATIVE THAT COMMANDS AND ACTIVITIES IDENTIFY POTENTIAL FUNDING DEFICIENCIES AND RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH SHORTFALLS.  IMPACTS TO OPERATIONAL COMMITMENTS, TRAINING, ETC MUST BE IDENTIFIED AND DOCUMENTED IN ORDER TO ENABLE A SERVICE-WIDE PRIORITIZATION.
4.B.1.  MPMC/RPMC APPROPRIATIONS.  MANNING BRANCH (RFM), PR DEPARTMENT WILL COORDINATE WITH MANPOWER AND RESERVE AFFAIRS (MRA) DEPARTMENT TO UNDERTAKE A REVIEW MPMC/RPMC EXECUTION IN MARCH 2012.  RFM WILL UTILIZE BASELINE/OCO OBLIGATION PHASING PLANS, MANPOWER PLANS, MOBILIZATION PLANS AND DISCRETIONARY PROGRAMS IN THE CONDUCT OF THIS REVIEW.  THE EVALUATION METRIC THAT WILL BE USED TO REVIEW EXECUTION RATE IN THE MPMC/RPMC APPROPRIATIONS WILL BE THE HISTORICAL OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE (OSD) GOAL OF PLUS OR MINUS 2 PERCENT WHEN COMPARED TO OBLIGATION PLANS.
4.B.2.  PMC/RDTEN/PANMC APPROPRIATIONS.  INVESTMENT BRANCH (RFI) AND EXECUTION BRANCH (RFE), PR DEPARTMENT WILL CONDUCT A MID-YEAR REVIEW WITH MARINE CORPS SYSTEMS COMMAND (MCSC) ON 8 AND 9 MARCH 2012.  DURING THIS REVIEW, PR DEPARTMENT WILL COMPARE OBLIGATION PERFORMANCE TO THE PUBLISHED OSD OBLIGATION RATES AND OBLIGATION PHASING PLANS FOR ALL YEARS OF THE INVESTMENT APPROPRIATIONS.  INVESTMENT APPROPRIATIONS WILL MEET HISTORICAL OSD EXPENDITURE OR OBLIGATION BENCHMARKS OR BE PREPARED TO PROVIDE EXPLANATORY INFORMATION DURING MID-YEAR REVIEW IN ORDER TO PRESERVE FUNDING.
4.B.3.  OMMC/OMMCR APPROPRIATIONS.  EXECUTION BRANCH (RFE), PR DEPARTMENT WILL CONDUCT A MID-YEAR REVIEW WITH ALL MAJOR REPORTING COMMANDS AND HQMC ACTIVITIES TO REVIEW OBLIGATION PERFORMANCE AGAINST BASELINE AND OCO OBLIGATION PHASING PLANS.  THE EVALUATION METRIC THAT WILL BE USED TO REVIEW THE EXECUTION OF THE OMMC/OMMCR APPROPRIATIONS WILL BE THE HISTORICAL OSD GOAL OF PLUS OR MINUS 2 PERCENT WHEN COMPARED TO OBLIGATION PLANS (ADJUSTED TO INCLUDE ANY INCREASES IN COMMAND AUTHORITY).  RFE WILL REVIEW FY12 AND THE FIVE ACTIVE PRIOR YEARS' OBLIGATIONS AND LIQUIDATIONS, BUT WILL NOT REVIEW REIMBURSABLES.  CIVILIAN LABOR EXECUTION WILL BE REVIEWED BASED ON COMMANDS' LABOR CONTROL COMPARED AGAINST THE CIVILIAN LABOR EXECUTION AS RECORDED IN SABRS AND WYPC.
4.B.3.A.  CENTRALLY MANAGED PROGRAM (CMP) FUNDING WILL BE REVIEWED BASED ON THE DATE THE FUNDING WAS RECEIVED.  COMMANDS FAILING TO OBLIGATE CMP FUNDS WITHIN 30 DAYS WILL BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE JUSTIFICATION FOR THE DELAY IN OBLIGATION.
4.B.3.B.  CURRENT YEAR DEFICIENCY (CYD).  PRIOR TO ENTERING ANY NEW ISSUES IN THE CYD DATABASE, COMMANDS WILL REVIEW THE GUIDANCE POSTED ON THE CYD WEBPAGE IN THE PR DEPARTMENT PORTAL HTTPS: SLASH SLASH ODSF.MCW.USMC.MIL/PORTAL/SERVLET/GLOBALLOGIN.  PRIOR TO SUBMITTING CYD REQUESTS, COMMANDS MUST PRIORITIZE AND CONSIDER OFFSETS WITHIN THEIR ESTABLISHED CONTROLS.  COMMANDS ARE DIRECTED TO INPUT COMMAND VALIDATED FY12 ISSUES IN THE CYD BY CLOSE OF BUSINESS 10 FEB.  CURRENT AND PRIOR YEAR PERFORMANCE WILL BE EVALUATED BEFORE BUDGET AUTHORITY IS INCREASED; IT IS EXPECTED THAT COMPETITION FOR ADDITIONAL FUNDING WILL BE ESPECIALLY KEEN IN FY12.
