Report of the Defense Science Board Task Force on Year 2000.
DEFENSE SCIENCE BOARD WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
In response to tasking from the Under Secretary of Defense Acquisition Technology, the DSB Task Force on Year 2000 has examined the Departments efforts and prepared the attached report. The Task Force concluded that the Year 2000 problem is a very serious one, but more than just a CIO problem. It is a CEO problem and it needs direction and guidance from the top. Its solution must include all users of IT, including the Secretary, Chairman, and the warfighting CINCs. The Task Force made three major recommendations USDAT appoint a full-time executive OSD establish a Year 2000 escape valve fund for the FY99 budget OSD should work with the components to establish incentives for Program Managers. These steps must be taken to get on top of the problem and reduce the management risk.
