Thanks for the input, I wanted to highlight something beyond the usual problems in defense procurement. My favorite write up highlighting those problems is here - http://www.navytimes.com/news/2010/03/navy_gaoreport_033110w/

On your second point, it addressed oversight within the Pentagon to the extent that it made planning / meeting technological maturity goals a requirement.

1. The HASC Committee Report is not the same thing as the National Defense Authorization Act (P.L. 109-364).

2. P.L. 109-364 did not address oversight so much as it addressed planning (and technology readiness, as your post noted). See the actual law here: http://www.wifcon.com/dodauth07.htm

3. The GAO report had quite a bit to say, almost none of which had to do with actual contractor oversight. In particular, problems with contractor quality continue to plague MDAPs.

I'm just sayin'.
