While consensus might exist that eliminating bureaucracy is

No, what is bureaucratic is having to wait one month for FD to review one
application, just to say `hey it's complete`, and pass it to the DAM. Then wait
another month. I don't see the point in it being reviewed twice if FD has no say
in the final decision and his only task is to check that everything is complete.
In this community, do you really want to suggest we have too many
eyes looking for problems?
Of course we could keep the status quo, but it seems to me merging DAM and FD
would do no harm and a lot of benefit (or if you want it another way, removing
the step of FD checking the application after the AM report, and adding more
people to the DAM).
