Abstract:

Although there are numerous problems associated with the management of Federal information systems, the usual solutions proposed for these problems have had and will have little, if any, effects. This paper examines the characteristics of Federal information systems and shows that most proposed solutions are directed at symptoms of the problems and not at their underlying causes. These solutions do not reflect the public sector nature of Federal information systems and hence, are either unrealistic or ineffectual. The authors do not propose another panacea.
