Abstract : This Guide describes how Congress is organized and structured to perform its two major responsibilities in working with DoD: the legislative process and the oversight function. It provides history, timetables, explanations, and rationale. It attempts to educate without hand-holding, inform without overwhelming. It offers recommendations based on current directives and operating procedures, tradition, experience, and a great deal of street smart intellect.
