About Department of defense

The Department of Defense, for one, has made considerable progress since receiving its barely passing grade. MITRE, a Massachusetts-based technology think tank, has completed an evaluation of Defense systems and made a series of recommendations. And according to the Defense Department's Year 2000 program coordinator Carla von Bernewitz, the department is now well into the assessment stage, with "pockets of the DOD already involved in testing." One move toward a more unified federal response has been the establishment of a General Services Administration Web site. The site operates as the government's Year 2000 clearinghouse, with background information, contact names, vendor/contract data and conference schedules available for department and agency use.
