The Office of Plans, Policy and Analysis supports the PM Assistant Secretary across a range of global political-military policy issues, programs, and planning activities. PPA annually directs approximately $5 billion in U.S. military assistance to friends and allies through policy development, budget formulation, and program oversight. It provides input on U.S. foreign policy objectives for Department of Defense planning and military activities.
