SAF/FM Sub-Organizations

SAF/FM is composed of four sub-organizations: FMB (Deputy Assistant Secretary for Budget), FMC (Deputy Assistant Secretary for Cost and Economics), FME (Directorate of Workforce Management and Executive Services), and FMF (Deputy Assistant Secretary for Financial Operations). Each of the sub-organizations supports an intrinsic part of the FM effort. In the paragraphs below, you will find information on the roles of these organizations, the products they supply to SAF/FM and the Air Force as a whole, and the structure of each.
