Abstract:

The divestitute of ATT has created many problems for the federal government and, in particular, the Defense Department. Numerous articles have been written about the negative impact of the divestitute on national security and emergency preparedness NSEP. However, action has been taken by the executive branch in the past year in an attempt to restore telecommunications management to pre-divestiture status. In the meanwhile, the increased competition and technological improvements underway by industry have served to increase the robustness of NSEP telecommunications which will eventually enhance national security and emergency preparedness. In order to take advantage of the added capability, the government must continue to implement policies and develop guidance to ensure that NSEP telecommunications systems have the necessary degree of interoperability and that actions by federal agencies to acquire new systems are coordinated.
