Abstract:

This report is the second in a series evaluating certifications that DoD automated information systems were being developed in accordance with the Clinger-Cohen Act. During FYs 2000 and 2001, Congress required that the Chief Information Officer, DoD, before approving acquisition Milestones I, II, or III of high-cost information systems, evaluate the actions taken related to specific requirements of the Clinger-Cohen Act. To help ensure effective oversight of DoD information technology investments, Congress included Section 8121b in the DoD Appropriations Act for FY 2000, which also required the Chief Information Officer, DoD, to inform Congress of the certifications and to provide confirmation that DoD Components took steps to meet specific requirements of the Act. The Reserve Component Automation System has estimated life cycle costs of 2.4 billion for FYs 1996 through 2007.
