Vayikra 16 : 21 the Pasuk says , וסמך אהרן--- ושלח ביד איש עתי המדברה .
The next Pasuk (22) it says again ושלח את השעיר במדבר .
R. Y.B. Soloveitchik zt”l (Boston) explains*, there were two Shlichos done.
In Pasuk 21,The Meshaleiach (sender) was the Kohen Gadol. The Ish Iti was the Shliach
of the Kohen Gadol (Ahron) . His mission was to bring the שעיר into the Midbar. As
soon as it arrived in the Midbar, The Kohen Gadols responsibility was done with. At
this point the K.G. may do the Krieah (reading) of the Parsha.
This is what the Mishna is telling us, אמרו לו לכ"ג הגיע שעיר למדבר
In Pasuk 22 the sender is not the Kohen Gadol but the Ish Iti . (for Klall Yisroel)
The Ish Iti sends (delivers) the שעיר to the צוק
ובזה מיושב הרבה דיוקים
* שיעורי הגרי"ד
The Ish Iti always died within the year. They picked a person whom
they knew (בקי בחכמת המזלות ) wouldn't survive the year. (ילקוט ראובני )
