Robert Hale, Pentagon comptroller, told Defense News the department stopped the shifts because of uncertainties such as sequestration cuts surrounding the budget.
Hale said the Pentagon included $88.5 billion in OCO funds for its fiscal year 2014 budget request but has not sent Congress its proposed OCO funding.
The Pentagon is set to receive about $81 billion and would incur a $7 billion fiscal year 2013 cut after the sequester, according to the report.
Hale told Defense News the department plans to keep requesting OCO funds that would go to post-2014 force levels and for repairing equipment.
Since 2010, OCO funds have declined from $162 billion to $115 billion in fiscal 2012, Marcus Weisgerber reports.
