This is a sentence from a book.

I knew an executive with a large public relations company who won a major account with a redevelopment agency tasked with the project of securing federal dollars to help New Orleans recover after Hurrican Katrina.

"a redevelopment agency tasked with the project of.... after Katrina."

"which was " should be placed between "agency" and tasked" , making it an adjective clause, but is omitted to make it concise, is that correct?


Yes, you are correct that the idea of "which was" is understood to be between "agency" and "tasked". It doesn't need to be written in explicitly because in the construction "noun-participle", it is implied.

Your use of "should" might imply that "which was" was mistakenly left out of the sentence. So please note that the long complicated sentence is correct as it appears in the book.
