I don't think that the delegation to Boeing is the problem, the quality of the software developed and tested there is the real problem, and that doesn't mean if the government was testing this, they will catch it, as you said their lack if talant there could be more dangerous to those systems as they don't have the expertise.

Велизар Великов If you are genuine and not some sort of troll, the "delegation" they are talking about is essentially Quality Assurance work. QA work is supposed to gatekeep products and services in the interest of customers. This costs money. If QA work is 'delegated' to the company that makes the products, they will obviously cut corners. Who watches the watchmen and all that. The software is the symptom, the cause is letting companies police themselves.
