After these line items are translated into

program requirements are developed, they will be
prioritized (figs. 4-3 and 4-4). Each program now
has a pricetag.
Prioritizing is simply listing costed pro-
grams in inverse order of need (fig. 4-3).
Managers of the Command Religious Program
must determine what dollar amount is essential

Then there exists a higher dollar amount
which, if approved, would allow the managers of
the Command Religious Program to provide more
