I must have been asleep last week

I know I was not-all-here last week, but I wonder how I missed this:
Vice Adm. Thad Allen, the Coast Guard's chief of staff, told the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee that an independent technical review of the agency's proposed fast response cutter should be completed within three to four weeks. Once the evaluation is in hand, the Coast Guard will decide whether to proceed with the planned procurement or search for another model that is already commercially available, said Allen, who has been confirmed to be the next Coast Guard commandant.
In case you missed that, let me reiterate:or search for another model that is already commercially available.

Here's Admiral Allen's full comments
; well worth a read.

Anyone want to take bets? I see an off-the-shelf solution coming...
