President Reagan yesterday named 14 industrialists, retired military officers, former Pentagon officials and Republicans with close White House ties to his new Commission on Defense Management.
The panel, chaired by former deputy defense secretary David Packard, now chairman of Hewlett-Packard, was set up by the administration in response to charges of mismanagement and waste in Pentagon procurement programs.
Democrats on Capitol Hill have charged that the panel was created to deflect criticism of Pentagon procurement-scandals in recent years.
Reagan signed an executive order creating the panel yesterday at Bethesda Naval Hospital.
