Keep in mind, the CIA managed the development of the U-2. It's a safe bet the Agency's acquisition processes, if they even existed, were far less exacting than those of USAF/DoD. This was "streamlined acquisition" at its most extreme. In this case it worked, would not have wanted to count on it in most programs.
