PERFORMANCE EVALUATION ELEMENTS WITHIN DEFENSE RESOURCES MANAGEMENT
Abstract: Defense resource management is a major challenge for the defense system of any state. That is true for developing states like Romania given the transition status of their economies, as well as their sensitive geopolitical environment. The large scale attempt to decrease the financial resources made available to the defense sector despite the latter real needs must be aligned with the necessity to focus on the efficiency and effectiveness of this field. Therefore, one possible solution could be to employ performance management in the process of allocating and managing the defense resources. Consequently, this paper focuses on analyzing the elements incurred by performance evaluation as part of defense resources management. In this respect, it starts from analyzing the factors that influence the performance of defense resources management, continues by identifying the requirements of the performance management system as related to the types of budgets, and concludes by identifying the possibilities to optimize resource allocation by elaborating and applying specific performance indicators.
