Defense One looks at efforts by new House Armed Services Committee Chair Mac Thornberry (R-TX) “to remove bureaucratic red tape from the Pentagon’s cumbersome acquisition process.”  

“At the center of his initial plan is removing bureaucracy from the managers of the Pentagon’s multimillion and multibillion-dollar projects… Over time, Pentagon program managers lose control of projects and spend more time managing people than a program itself… The legislation also aims to remove some mandatory annual reports.”
