When Congress passes a law to have federal agencies do something or other, it’s often accompanied by creation of a special office and an annual report just to make sure. Over time, these mandates can outlive their usefulness. The Section 809 panel, named for the line in the defense authorization bill that created the panel, is charged with making recommendations to Congress for updating and streamlining Defense procurement.
