Overview Edit

The FY91 Defense Authorization Act directed DoD to establish the Acquisition Law Advisory Panel, which came to be known as the "Section 800 Panel" after the portion of the Act that prescribed its creation. The panel, which included representatives from the public and private sectors, was tasked to review all laws applicable to DoD acquisition with the objective of streamlining those laws. The Panel's extensive report, "Streamlining Defense Acquisition Laws," is recognized as one of the two key documents (the other being Vice-President Gore's "National Performance Review") that laid the foundation for the acquisition reforms of the 1990s.
