FY 1995 Budget Estimates. Report on Information Technology Systems. Department of Defense, Office of the Inspector General.
INSPECTOR GENERAL DEPT OF DEFENSE ARLINGTON VA
Pagination or Media Count:
The budget request supports agency requirements for telecommunications and automated information technology. The automated information technology costs involve hardware, software, maintenance, training, inter-agency service, and information system support personnel for agency standalone, network, and mainframe processing requirements. Standalone equipment such as portable computer laptops are used by auditors and inspectors in the field to facilitate data recording and report writing and need to be replaced on a scheduled basis. The headquarters local area network facilitates communication and datasharing within the agency and allows development of information systems on the network to support audit, inspections, investigative and management support missions. Mainframe processing time obtained through inter-agency support agreement is used for management support systems such as the agency procurement system, inventory system, and audit project information system, and for audit statistical analysis. Purchase of a minicomputer in FY 1993 allows the reduced used of mainframe processing time as statistical analysis is shifted to in-house resources.
