R-Form Flow ChartBudget Exhibits are prepared by the DoD Components to support requests for appropriations from Congress and help justify the President’s Budget.

RDT&E Programs Budget Exhibit are broken down into 5 levels:

  • R-1 Exhibits: is the basic document for presenting DoD’s RDT&E requirements. The R-1 is prepared at the Component headquarters level, with one exhibit for each separate RDT&E appropriation account. Because the R-1 is a summary document, all other RDT&E exhibits submitted for a program element must reconcile to the numbers shown on the R-1.
  • R-2 Exhibits: provides summary funding information, program description, and budget justification for each RDT&E program element. For program elements with more than one project, a similar form, the R-2a, is prepared for each project. If prepared, R-2a forms should be reconciled to the project data shown on the R-2. The R-2 should then be reconciled to the R-1 to ensure consistency. R-3 Exhibits:  provides detailed cost information for each project under a Program Element in Budget Activities 4, 5 and 7, with funding of $1 million or more in any budget year covered by the budget request.
  • R-4 Exhibits:  provides a schematic display of major program milestones. This exhibit is required (beginning with the FY05 budget submission) for each project in budget activities 4, 5 and 7, with funding of $1 million or more in any budget year covered by the budget request. If a program element consists of only one project, then the R-4 is prepared for the entire program element.
  • R-4a Exhibits: provides a tabular display of the major program milestones shown on the R-4 as well as any additional program events that support this schedule. This exhibit is required (beginning with the FY05 budget submission) for each project in budget activities 4, 5 and 7, with funding of $1 million or more in any budget year covered by the budget request. If a program element consists of only one project, then the R-4a is prepared for the entire program element.
