Yep they make "recommendations". Recommendations are made all the time. Commanders are free to disregard recommendations at their pleasure.Committees make recommendations to commanders who order things. Committees/working groups exists (and need to exist) to inform/advise commanders.
But Commanders should own those decisions. It's not the Dress Committee that made that decision.
Commander's also shouldn't be making decisions that violate higher authorities and orders. Like the Navy's recent circumvention of QR&Os to push through a "rank change" for cheap political points.
