Abstract:

As of October 2002, DOD reported that its business systems environment consisted of 1,731 systems and system acquisition projects spanning about 18 functional areas. This environment is the product of unrelated, stovepiped initiatives supporting nonstandard, duplicative business operations across DOD components. For fiscal year 2003, about 18 billion of DODs IT funding relates to operating, maintaining, and modernizing these nonintegrated systems. To DODs credit, it recognizes the need to modernize, eliminating as many of these systems as possible.
