GENTEXT/RMKS/1.  THE PURPOSE OF THIS MESSAGE IS TO PUBLISH FY13 MID-YEAR REVIEW (MYR) GUIDANCE IN ORDER TO PREPARE FOR A THOROUGH REVIEW OF MARINE CORPS EXPENDITURES, UNOBLIGATED BALANCES, AND CURRENT YEAR DEFICIENCIES (CYD) TO REALIGN FUNDING AS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO MEET SHORTFALLS AND EMERGENT REQUIREMENTS.  IN ADDITION, THE RESULTS OF THE MYR WILL SERVE AS A BASIS TO ARTICULATE MARINE CORPS FY13 AND FY14 TOPLINE REQUIREMENTS AND EXECUTABILITY.
2.  THIS MARADMIN PRESCRIBES THE PROCESS THAT WILL BE USED TO CONDUCT THIS MYR AND PROVIDES ESSENTIAL DEADLINES REQUIRED TO SUPPORT A MARINE REQUIREMENTS OVERSIGHT COUNCIL (MROC) DECISION IN APRIL 2013.  THE MYR/CYD PROCESS CULMINATES IN A VETTED AND APPROVED POSITION THAT DEFINES MARINE CORPS FUNDING PRIORITIES.
3.  FY13 MID-YEAR REVIEW GUIDANCE
3.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 AND POTENTIAL OMNIBUS REPROGRAMMING ACTIONS. 
3.B.  DC, PR WILL CONDUCT AN ABBREVIATED  MYR WITH EACH MAJOR REPORTING COMMAND AND  SELECTED HQMC ACTIVITIES TO EVALUATE CURRENT YEAR OBLIGATION PERFORMANCE IN ALL APPROPRIATIONS.  THIS REVIEW WILL IDENTIFY FUNDING DEFICIENCIES AND DEVELOP PROPOSED OFFSETS TO ADDRESS EMERGENT SHORTFALLS IN ALL APPROPRIATIONS.  DC, PR WILL GIVE PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO LOW OBLIGATION RATES WHICH MAY BE CONSIDERED FOR INTERNAL TRADE-OFFS TO FUND SHORTFALLS WITHIN THE COMMAND OR  BE REALIGNED TO FUND HIGHER PRIORITY REQUIREMENTS.  IT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT THAT COMMANDS AND ACTIVITIES UNDERSTAND THAT LOW OBLIGATION RATES, AS MEASURED AGAINST OSD BENCHMARKS, MUST BE DEFENDED WITH OBLIGATION PLANS THAT SHOW THE NEED FOR THOSE UNOBLIGATED FUNDS DURING THE REMAINDER OF THE FISCAL YEAR.  IT IS ALSO IMPERATIVE THAT COMMANDS AND ACTIVITIES IDENTIFY POTENTIAL FUNDING DEFICIENCIES AND RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH SHORTFALLS.  IMPACTS TO OPERATIONAL COMMITMENTS, TRAINING, ETC. MUST BE IDENTIFIED AND DOCUMENTED IN ORDER TO ENABLE A SERVICE-WIDE PRIORITIZATION.
3.C. BECAUSE OCO BUDGETS ARE REDUCED UNDER SEQUESTRATION, THERE IS INCREASED SCRUTINY BEING GIVEN TO OCO OBLIGATION RATES.  IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT, IN ADDITION TO ARTICULATING OCO CYDS, ALL COMMANDS ENSURE OCO OBLIGATIONS ARE BEING RECORDED PROPERLY AND THAT APPROPRIATE OCO SPECIAL INTEREST CODES ARE PROPERLY AFFIXED TO ALL OCO OBLIGATIONS.  
4.  APPROPRIATION SPECIFIC GUIDANCE:
4.A.  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 2013.  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 +/- 2 PERCENT WHEN COMPARED TO OBLIGATION PLANS. 
4.B.  PMC/RDTEN/PANMC APPROPRIATIONS.  INVESTMENT BRANCH (RFI) PR DEPARTMENT WILL CONDUCT A MID-YEAR REVIEW WITH MARINE CORPS SYSTEMS COMMAND (MCSC) ON 8 - 11 APRIL 2013.  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.  LIKEWISE, EXPENDITURES WILL ALSO BE REVIEWED FOR RDTEN.  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.C.1.  OMMC/OMMCR APPROPRIATIONS.  EXECUTION BRANCH (RFE), PR DEPARTMENT WILL CONDUCT A MID-YEAR REVIEW WITH ALL MAJOR REPORTING COMMANDS AND SELECTED HQMC ACTIVITIES TO REVIEW OBLIGATION PERFORMANCE AGAINST OSD BENCHMARKS; BASELINE AND OCO PHASING PLANS; AND PERFORMANCE CHARTS.  CIVILIAN LABOR EXECUTION WILL BE REVIEWED BASED ON COMMANDS' MANAGE TO PAYROLL CONTROL AS COMPARED AGAINST THE CIVILIAN LABOR EXECUTION.  CENTRALLY MANAGED PROGRAM (CMP) FUNDING BALANCES WILL BE REVIEWED BASED ON MISSION IMPACT AND EFFECTIVENESS.
4.C.2.  CURRENT YEAR DEFICIENCY (CYD).  ALTHOUGH HR 933 IS SIGNED INTO LAW, FINAL CONTROLS ARE STILL PENDING OMB AND OSD ACTIONS, SO THE EVALUATION OF FY13 CYDS WILL BE CHALLENGING THIS YEAR.  FOR THE PURPOSE OF IDENTIFYING CYDS, USE THE CURRENT 1 MARCH FISCAL CONTROLS (WHICH WERE BASED ON A SEQUESTERED ANNUALIZED CONTINUING RESOLUTION BUDGET).  THEN, IDENTIFY HOW MUCH OF THE CYD WOULD REMAIN F THE COMMAND RECEIVED THE AMOUNTS IN THE HR933-BASED PLANNING CONTROLS PROVIDED ON 21 MARCH IN MARINE CORPS ACTION TRACKING SYSTEM TASK NUMBER 2013-3-192._. 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:(SLASHSLASH)ODSF.MCW.USMC.MIL/PORTAL/SERVLET/GLOBALLOGIN.  IN ADDITION, COMMANDS WILL PRIORITIZE ALL SHORTFALLS AND CONSIDER OFFSETS WITHIN THEIR FISCAL CONTROLS.  EACH MAJOR REPORTING COMMAND WILL BE LIMITED TO ONLY THEIR TOP TEN CYDS.  COMMANDS ARE DIRECTED TO INPUT COMMAND VALIDATED FY13 ISSUES IN THE CYD BY CLOSE OF BUSINESS 5 APRIL.
