The Senate Military Oversight Committee was a department of the Galactic Senate of the Republic and the Imperial Senate of the Galactic Empire.
It was concerned with military spending required to defend constituent planets. It oversaw the Judicial Forces, Planetary Defense Forces and during the Clone Wars, the Grand Army of the Republic.
During the development of the Executor-class Star Dreadnought, the Imperial Navy wanted to avoid a controversy in the Senate about the ship's role and its commissions were given falsified information about the class, portraying it as a much smaller vessel with a Star Destroyer designation.
The Senate Military Oversight Committee was ultimately modified under the rule of the Galactic Empire, becoming the Imperial Military Oversight Commission.
