My answer to What businesses was started due to bad business or government processes?

Answer by Ken Larson:

My favorite is the “Project on Government Oversight” I have followed it for over 3 decades.

“Founded in 1981, POGO originally worked to expose outrageously overpriced military spending on items such as a $7,600 coffee maker and a $435 hammer. In 1990, after many successes reforming military spending, including a Pentagon spending freeze at the height of the Cold War, POGO decided to expand its mandate and investigate waste, fraud, and abuse throughout the federal government.

Throughout its history, POGO’s work has been applauded by Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle, federal workers and whistle blowers, other nonprofits, and the media.”
