Aaron Mehta writes Deidre Lee, a former director of Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy and previously a Office of Federal Procurement Policy administrator, will lead the Advisory Panel on Streamlining and Codifying Acquisition Regulations.

A final report to the defense secretary is due by the third quarter of 2018 and the panel is seeking public comments via the Internet, the report says.
