Abstract:

In 1965, Congress passed Public Law 89-306 establishing a government-wide automatic data processing ADP management program. However, in the thirteen years since passage of the law, technological advances have significantly changed the capabilities, costs, and applications of automatic data processing equipment ADPE. This research effort is a study to determine whether current ADP acquistion and management policies are appropriate for small-scale ADPE. A literature review was used to identify the technological changes that have occurred in ADPE since 1965, to determine if the ADP management program was founded on particular technological assumptions, and to identify the present Air Force requirements for the acquistion and managemnt of ADPE.
